Philippines prepare for visit from President Obama

Preparations are underway in the Philippines as the capital prepares for an upcoming visit from U.S. President Barack Obama.

The U.S. and the Philippines have reached a ten-year deal, which would allow a larger U.S. military presence in the Southeast Asian nation.

Territorial spats between the Philippines and China have heated-up in recent years over the South China Sea. The Philippines turned to Washington, a longtime ally, for help to modernize its navy and air force.

Anti-American activists against the agreement are expected to march outside the palace while the presidents meet.
