(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took his turn on the podium at this week's United Nations General Assembly meeting today, stating his case against Iran and its nuclear ambitions.  He says Iran is amassing enough enriched uranium to produce a nuclear weapon within months.  He again called for a clear red line to force Iran to back down:

[2:31] “You see at stake is not merely the future of my country.  At stake is the future of the world.  And,  nothing could imperil our common future more than the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons."  

  • There were plenty of speeches inside the United Nations, but on the ground the United Nations refugee service is focusing on Syria. Yesterday was the bloodiest day in the country's 18-month civil war.  Almost 350 people were killed. Thousands of Syrian refugees have fled to neighboring countries and there are estimates the totals could reach 700,000 by the end of the year.  CNN correspondent, Ivan Watson visited a squalid, makeshift camp this week just inside of  Syria and brings us the story of one of the many families  hoping to be allowed into Turkey :

[7:51] " What I was stunned by among these refugees was to hear parents say, 'yes it's all worth it... we can sacrifice our children and our homes just to bring down this government'."

  • And, what does freedom mean to you?  CNN's Steve Kastenbaum tries to answer that question by talking to people in his Brooklyn neighborhood. One recent immigrant from Yemen explains how freedom has taken on a new meaning for him in his new home.

[12:16]  "Freedom in my country is different because we have over there, the religion ... and the traditional covers eveything over there."
