UpdatedPresident Obama has left a golf course abruptly while vacationing in Hawaii on Monday for a “personal matter,” and an ambulance was seen speeding to the first family’s compound.

CBS 2 (WCBS- TV)has learned that the incident does not involve any member of the first family, and that a family friend traveling with them has suffered a minor injury.

Earlier, the president interrupted his holiday vacation Monday to make a statement on the alleged bomb plot by a Nigerian man accused of attempting to ignite explosives over Michigan while on a U.S. airliner.

The president said the national security team must keep up pressure on those overseas who want to harm the U.S. “We will not rest until we find all who are involved and hold them accountable,” the president said.

Obama also noted that he has ordered a thorough review of the U.S. watchlist system and airport screening procedures.

These were the president’s first public remarks since the Christmas day incident.
