DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania (AP) - President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush have laid a wreath at a memorial for Americans killed in the 1998 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Tanzania.
It was a rare joint public appearance by the two presidents.
Both men bowed their heads after a Marine placed the wreath on a stand. They shook hands with victims and family and walked back to the embassy together. The ceremony lasted minutes; neither man made any public comments.
Tuesday's embassy visit is one of Obama's final stops as he wraps up a weeklong tour of the continent. Bush's institute is hosting a two-day summit here on African women.
Both of the presidents' wives were at the summit Tuesday.
