Washington: US President Barack Obama heads to Seoul, South Korea, late Friday for an International Summit on keeping nuclear weapons material out of the hands of terrorists.

Nearly 60 world leaders are expected to attend the gathering on Monday and Tuesday.

Obama also plans to make a stop at the Demilitarised Zone separating North and South Korea and to visit some of the approximately 28,500 US troops stationed in South Korea, as a legacy of the Korean War six decades ago.
