Obama`s daughter safe after Mexico earthquake

US President Barack Obama`s oldest daughter, Malia, is safe and never was in danger during the 7.4-magnitude earthquake that jolted Mexico.



Washington: US President Barack Obama`s
oldest daughter, Malia, is safe and never was in danger during
the 7.4-magnitude earthquake that jolted Mexico, the White
House has said.

Malia, 13, is on vacation with her friends in Oaxaca in
southwestern Mexico.

"In light of today`s earthquake, we can confirm that
Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger," the US first
lady`s communications director Kristina Schake said in a
written statement.

Reports that Malia was traveling in Mexico for spring
break with friends first surfaced on Monday. As always, the
White House asked journalists not to report on the Obama
children and several media outlets later removed stories they
had posted about Malia`s vacation.

The quake that struck south of the Pacific resort of
Acapulco, between the Mexican states of Guerrero and Oaxaca,
and was followed by several aftershocks, the US Geological
Survey said. The quake injured at least 11 people and damaged
hundreds of homes.
