US President Barack Obama has cut short his visit to India, cancelling a planned trip to the Taj Mahal, to "pay respects" to new King Salman in Saudi Arabia.

Obama was scheduled to go to India's famed monument to love accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama at the end of a three-day visit to the country, during which he is to be chief guest at Monday's Republic Day celebrations.

Instead, the White House said Obama would travel to Riyadh from New Delhi on Tuesday morning to meet the new monarch after the death of Salman's half-brother King Abdullah yesterday.
