Obama`s uncle out of US jail, whereabouts unclear

Boston: Officials say President Barack Obama`s
uncle has been released from a Massachusetts jail two weeks
after being arrested on a drunk driving charge.

Onyango Obama was detained by federal immigration
officials for allegedly violating an order to return to his
native Kenya. Federal officials would not say why he was
released Thursday or where he went.

People who live in the same Framingham home as him and
workers at a liquor store where he was a valued employee tell
The Boston Globe they don`t know where Obama is. His lawyers
were unavailable for comment.

Onyango Obama is the half-brother of the president`s
father. Federal officials have said he was ordered to leave
the US nearly two decades ago. He was arrested in Framingham
on Aug. 24 on the drunk driving count.
