Indonesian film makers plan Obama movie

Breaking News

An Indonesian director is to begin work on a film about US President Barack Obama's early years in the country.

The film will be called Obama the Child of Menteng, after the suburb of Jakarta where Mr Obama lived from 1967 to 1971.

Its release will coincide with the president's visit to the country next month.

But correspondents say the film has already stirred controversy, after local media suggested it would contain scenes of Mr Obama reciting the Koran.
