BEIJING (AFP) - Visiting US first lady Michelle Obama held a meeting on Sunday at the US embassy with Chinese educators and families, after her arrival there sparked a minor security alert.

Two people just outside the embassy began shouting as her motorcade pulled in, while police and men in grey sweatshirts and pants ran to subdue them.

It was unclear what they were shouting about.

Mrs Obama is making a week-long trip to China focused on education and "soft" issues.
