Obama kin arrested

New York, Jan. 31: Barack Obama’s Kenyan half-brother, George, has been arrested in Nairobi on suspicion of possessing marijuana.

The 24-year-old, who denies the allegation, was told he would face a court hearing on Monday. George, who hardly knows Obama, had one joint of marijuana on him, police said. The White House declined comment.
