President Barack Obama is on the second day of a Latin American tour meant to bolster economic and cultural ties. AP Correspondent Mark Smith reports on President Obama’s tour.

The president and his family took in sights in Rio de Janeiro. They visited the City of God shantytown that gained fame after a movie by the same name won Oscar nominations. At a community center in the heart of the jostling slum of 40,000, Obama watched a martial arts display and played soccer with some children. First lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia got involved, too, kicking a ball around with the kids. President Obama is also keeping in touch with his national security team as U.S. ships and warplanes take part in the international military intervention in Libya.
