Obama's uncle out of jail, whereabouts unclear
BOSTON (AP) - Federal immigration officials say President Barack Obama's uncle has been released from a Massachusetts jail two weeks after being arrested on a drunken-driving charge.
Onyango Obama was detained on allegations he violated an order to return to his native Kenya years ago. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Brian Halle says he was released Thursday and was ordered to regularly check in with the agency.
People who live in the same Framingham home as Obama and workers at a liquor store where he was a valued employee tell The Boston Globe they don't know where he is. His lawyer, Margaret Wong, won't comment.
Obama is the half-brother of the president's late father. He was ordered to leave the U.S. nearly two decades ago. He was arrested in Framingham on Aug. 24 on the drunken-driving count.
