Thousands of Security Personnel on Jakarta Streets for Obama

Muslim students hold posters of U.S President Barack Obama and shout slogans during an anti-Obama rally in front the U.S embassy in Jakarta November 5, 2010. Obama is expected to visit to the worlds most populous Muslim country next week, where he spent four years while growing up. The poster reads, "Obama is enemy of Islamic people".

JAKARTA, - Indonesia will put 8,500 security personnel, including the military, on the streets for US President Barack Obama’s visit to Jakarta, police said Friday.

“We will deploy about 8,500 personnel, including from the military, to secure the visit of President Obama in Jakarta,” national police spokesman Iskandar Hasan said. “There will be 8,056 personnel from the Jakarta police force,” he said.

Obama, who is scheduled to be in Indonesia for two days from November 9, will visit the largest mosque in Jakarta to make a speech on interfaith harmony and will also have a press conference with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

The US president will also formally launch a US-Indonesia comprehensive partnership, which is designed to deepen cooperation on political, security and economic issues. Obama lived in Indonesia for four years as a boy and has often spoken fondly of his memories of that time.
