Obama family attending Easter service at DC church

Last Updated: Sunday, April 4, 2010 - 23:46

Washington: President Barack Obama and his
family are attending the Easter service at a historically
black Methodist church in southeast Washington.

The Obamas travelled today morning to the Allen Chapel
AME Church. The first family has attended a variety of
churches in the US capital since Obama`s election.

The Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church traces its roots to just
before the Civil War when it ministered to free blacks in the
Anacostia area of Washington. It is part of the African
Methodist Episcopal Church.

Southeast Washington was rocked last week by a drive-by
shooting that left four dead and five others wounded. Three
people have been charged in the shooting, the city`s deadliest
in years.
