Obama's Aunt can Stay in US

Washington, May 18 (DPA) President Barack Obama's Kenyan aunt has been granted asylum and can remain in the US, an immigration court ruled, according to media reports Monday.

The US Immigration Court in Boston mailed a letter to Zeituni Onyango confirming the decision on Friday.

Onyango had made her case three months ago that the political situation in Kenya was too dangerous for her to return to the country.

Onyango is the half sister of Obama's deceased father. The White House has said that it did not get involved in the case. Onyango attorneys announced the decision.
