Michelle Obama receives rock star welcome at London school

U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama visited an inner city school in London on Tuesday and announced a joint British-U.S. programme to invest nearly $200 million in supporting girls' education in countries affected by conflict.

Ms. Obama, accompanied by her daughters Malia and Sasha and her mother Marian Robinson, is in Britain to promote her 'Let Girls Learn' initiative, which aims to reduce the number of girls not in school and thereby improve their financial security, health and independence.
