Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

Security for Joe Biden's trip to India is tight, but agents couldn't do much about some rowdy troublemakers during a stop at the Gandhi Memorial.

Photographers held their breath as Biden and his wife approached - luckily, no falling mangoes or other monkey business.

It's MORNING EDITION.
