MADRID (AP) — U.S. first lady Michelle Obama has arrived in Spain on the final leg of a three-nation tour to promote her global girls' education initiative.
Obama, accompanied by daughters Sasha and Malia, flew into Torrejon air base outside Madrid on Wednesday from Morocco. She started the tour in Liberia.
She is due to give a speech on her "Let Girls Learn" initiative Thursday to a group of girls and young women in Madrid. Spain's Queen Letizia is also to address the conference and later meet with Mrs. Obama.
President Barack Obama and the first lady launched the initiative last year to address the barriers that keep more than 62 million girls around the world out of school.
The first lady is scheduled to leave Madrid on Friday.
