Security has been increased around the home of President Obama's step-grandmother after an African branch of al Qaida issued a personal threat against her.

Kenyan police say they are patrolling around the clock following the threat against Sarah Obama.

The 88-year-old said she is not concerned about the threat.

Al-Qaida and its affiliates have issued numerous threats in the wake of Osama bin Laden's killing, most of them broad threats of reprisal against the West.
