New Delhi: An extraordinary entourage will accompany US President Obama and his wife Michelle when they will be witnessing the Republic Day parade at Rajpath on January 26.

The US President will travel in ‘The Beast', his bomb-proof General Motors Cadillac with eight-inch thick armour-plating on its doors. The car is designed to protect the president from terror attacks and keep him connected with his administration on the go.
