Intialaiset laittoivat kiertämään huhun, jonka mukaan Obaman Mumbain vierailua turvaisi 34 alusta, moniin pieniin sotiinkaan ei ole lähdetty noin suurella määrällä 'tonneja'.
No, Pentagon says, Obama will not be guarded by 34 ships
President Barack Obama will not be protected by a vast armada of 34 US warships when he visits Mumbai this weekend, officials said, calling reports from India on security preparations "comical."
"I will take the liberty this time of dismissing as absolutely absurd this notion that somehow we were deploying 10 percent of the Navy -- some 34 ships and an aircraft carrier -- in support of the president's trip to Asia," Morrell said.
While a huge show of US naval power was not in the offing, municipal authorities in Mumbai said they had removed coconuts from trees around the city's Gandhi museum -- where Obama is due to visit -- just in case.
"The coconuts were falling off, so we requested the local authorities here to remove the remainder," the executive secretary of Mani Bhavan, Meghshyam Ajgaonkar, told AFP.
