CHICAGO, May 30 (UPI) -- The White House media, trying to cover the president at a Chicago barbecue, had a standoff during the weekend with Louis Farrakhan's followers, reporters say.

President Barack Obama and his family were in Chicago for the Memorial Day, and were attending a barbecue Saturday not far from their home. Meanwhile, the White House press corps and their van were out on the street.

Apparently, they were standing outside the home of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, reporters said.
