Kenya lockdown as Obama comes to talk security, trade

The streets of the Kenyan capital were empty on Friday afternoon ahead of US President Barack Obama’s arrival, with a massive security operation under way to protect him from Al-Qaeda-linked Somali militants. Obama, making his first visit as president to his father’s birthplace, will address an entrepreneurship summit and hold talks on trade and investment, security and counter-terrorism, and democracy and human rights. Parts of the Kenyan capital Nairobi have been locked down and airspace will be closed during the president’s arrival late Friday and his departure late Sunday, when he travels up the Rift Valley to neighbouring Ethiopia, the seat of the African Union.
