ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron toured the Enniskillen Integrated Primary School where both Protestants and Catholic students attend on Monday. Wearing shirts and ties the two leaders met schoolchildren and teachers and one pupil read President Obama a poem which prompted a cheer from both men. In the school playground Obama and Cameron then helped children who were painting a mural. When they had finished the children gave both men three cheers. Obama faces a tougher test later when he meets the Russian president in what could be a frosty G8 meeting after the Kremlin chief clashed with the West over plans to arm Syrian rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad. At their first private face-to-face meeting in a year, Obama will try to convince President Vladimir Putin to bring Assad to the negotiating table but the Russian leader has shown little sign of compromise.
