JAKARTA, Indonesia -- President Obama will probably cut short his one-day Indonesia visit because volcanic ash is complicating air travel in the region, aides said as Air Force One arrived here Tuesday.
The change would be just the latest of several disruptions in the president's trip to the country where he lived for a while as a child.
The Tuesday arrival comes after two cancellations earlier in the year, first because of a congressional vote on the president's health-care plan and then because of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Originally, Obama had hoped to bring his daughters and stay for a few days. When the Indonesia visit became part of an economics-focused tour of Asia this month, the stop here was shortened to just a day.
First lady Michelle Obama is the only member of the family accompanying him.
The president still plans to deliver an address to university students and visit a mosque, but aides may change other parts of his schedule, press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday.
