Obama Foundation kicks off first leadership summit in Chicago

Former US President Barack Obama has kicked off a two-day leadership summit in his hometown of Chicago.

He's addressed 500 young people at the event, which is the first to be run by his foundation.

Presidential foundations have a chequered history, ranging from questions of the Clinton Foundation's funding sources to the Nixon library's alleged whitewashing of the Watergate scandal.

Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from Chicago.
