Obama arrives in China f

US President Barack Obama is in Shanghai, launching a three-day visit to an important global US partner and his first travels ever in China.
Obama's jet landed in Shanghai late Sunday night in a driving rain. He stopped briefly at the top of the jetway stairs to wave, then disappeared into a knot of umbrellas at the bottom, where Chinese dignitaries greeted him on his way into his limousine.
Obama is in Shanghai for one day, then travels to Beijing for a two-day state visit hosted by Chinese President Hu Jintao.
