Okello urged U.S. President Barack Obama to initiate efforts to build export-processing factories in Kogelo as the village has enough manpower to produce quality products. "We have a lot of idle youth and he has promoted insecurity within the village," he added. As U.S. President Barack Obama visits Kenya, a personal connection to his father's birthplace of Kogelo dominates a trip that Kenyans view as a native son returning home. Residents from a herdsman to a housewife share their views on what Obama has achieved and what they would like to see next. REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya

A worker wearing a protective suit and mask walks next to a fuel handling machine on the spent fuel pool inside the No. 4 reactor building at the tsunami-crippled TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture, November 7, 2013. Japan approved on October 30, 2013 a plan by TEPCO to extract thousands of nuclear fuel rods from the fuel pool of the No. 4 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Containing radiation equivalent to 14,000 times the amount released in the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima 68 years ago, more than 1,300 used fuel rod assemblies packed tightly together need to be removed from a building that is vulnerable to collapse, should another large earthquake hit the area.

An employee takes pictures as a giant platform carrying a 1450-ton-heavy hydrocracking reactor arrives at the Rosneft's Achinsk refinery after a 2-month-long trip along the "Baikal" federal highway outside the town of Achinsk, some 188 km (117 miles) west of Krasnoyarsk, October 28, 2013. One of four reactors, made in Italy for the modernization of the Rosneft Achinsk oil refining factory, was transported to the town of Achinsk after crossing the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, then sailing about 3,000 kilometers upwards the Yenisei River and then about 180 kilometers along the M53 federal highway from Krasnoyarsk to Achinsk to make the total distance of about 12,500 kilometers. The platform on 384 rubber tyres was moving with an average speed of 2 kilometers per hour, according to local media.
