Obamas expected in French Polynesia

Former US president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are reportedly due to arrive in French Polynesia tomorrow for a month-long stay.

Tahiti Nui TV reported that several sources had confirmed that Mr Obama would initially stay at the Brando resort on Tetiaroa.

The French Polynesian presidency said it had been advised of Mr Obama's arrival but no details about his stay had been given.

The reports said during their visit, Mr and Mrs Obama would also spend time on Bora Bora.

They said there would be no formal welcome when the couple arrives in Tahiti.
