WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has cancelled his scheduled visit Friday to the University of Kansas in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing. The White House issued a brief statement Tuesday saying the president's schedule had changed. He will go to Boston on Thursday to attend an interfaith memorial dedicated to victims of the blasts. It's unclear whether the White House will reschedule the Kansas visit. The purpose of Obama's trip to Kansas had not been disclosed, though state Democratic leaders were asked to find a venue on the Lawrence campus that could hold between 3,000 and 6,000 people.
