US President Barack Obama arrived in Costa Rica on Friday for a summit with Central American leaders focused on trade, immigration and the drug war following a 24-hour trip to Mexico.

Obama's plane landed in San Jose around 1:50 pm (1950 GMT) amid heavy security in the capital, with many streets and shops closed ahead of his talks with the seven leaders of Central America, plus the Dominican Republic.
