JOPLIN, Missouri - US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he will visit a devastated section of Missouri where 116 people were killed by a monster tornado, as rescue efforts resumed in the small city of Joplin.

Obama, making a statement from the US ambassador's residence in London as he begins a state visit to Britain, said his message to those affected by storms in the US Midwest is that the federal government stands by them. He was to visit Joplin on Sunday.

"All we can do is let them know that all of America cares deeply about them and that we are going to do absolutely everything we can to make sure that they recover," he said.

Obama is on a week-long, four-nation tour in Europe and is to return to Washington on Saturday.
