JAKARTA - A statue depicting U.S, President Barack Obama as a boy was on Sunday removed from a park in Indonesia's capital, officials said.

The two meter high bronze was removed from Menteng Park and taken to nearby Menteng One primary school, which Mr Obama attended in the late 1960s, vice-principal Akhmad Solikhin said.

'Workers hired by the school, local government and alumni spent an hour removing the statue with electric equipment,' he added.

'We'll need another two to three days to place the statue at the compound near the school gate so the public can see it when they pass by,' Mr Solikhin added.
