"Malawi police and stone-throwing school students blocked journalists from covering pop star Madonna's visit to an orphanage on Tuesday where the boy she is adopting was due to meet his biological father.
Teenaged students in black and yellow uniforms from the secondary school at the Mchinji Home of Hope orphanage hurled stones at journalists' cars and formed a protective ring around the building.
Apparently seeking to fulfill the orphanage's pledge that one-year-old David Banda's visit with his father would be private, police forced the journalists back, preventing them from following Madonna's convoy into the compound.
Since the U.S. pop diva arrived in Malawi on Monday, accompanied by David and her daughter Lourdes, she has been trailed by a pack of journalists in a media furor echoing her first trip to the poor African nation last year, when she started the adoption process.
The 48-year-old star's spokeswoman has denied media reports she planned to adopt a second Malawian child.(SOURCE YAHOO NEWS)
