A half-kilometer brick wall has been hastily erected in India's Gujarat State ahead of a visit by US President Donald Trump, with critics saying it was built to block the view of a slum area inhabited by more than 2,000 people.

Trump is to drive along a road next to the slum in Ahmedabad and will be accompanied by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is from Gujarat State.
