WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is paying tribute to his new FBI director.

The president plans to speak at an installation ceremony later Monday for James Comey at FBI headquarters a few blocks from the White House.

Comey was a top Justice Department official in the Bush administration and took over last month for Robert Mueller (MUHL'-ur), who stepped down after 12 years of heading the agency.

Comey has taken over an agency that has shifted from primarily focusing on domestic crime to also fighting terrorism in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks.
