Indonesia's verdict on Obama

Indonesians pay rare tribute to US president on his first year in office.

     

    As Barack Obama marks his first anniversary as US president, Al Jazeera is looking at the impact of his presidency inside the US and around the world.

    Obama spent part of his childhood in Indonesia and he has been hailed by some there as a local hero.

    But one year on, his popularity has dipped.
