The Kenyan capital of Nairobi is preparing for President Obama's visit this weekend, and so is the Secret Service. A lot of work goes into protecting the president while he travels, but this trip could be especially tricky. (Video via Voice of America)
The State Department has warned that terrorist groups might try to make a move during the president's visit, including the infamous Al-Shabab, the group which claimed responsibility for the attack on the Westgate shopping mall that left 67 dead in 2013. (Video via CCTV)
