Hillary Clinton in Africa

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has arrived in Kenya to begin an 11-day tour of the African continent.

Her trip will include South Africa, Nigeria, Liberia and Angola and she will meet Somali leaders in Kenya. The visit, her longest overseas journey in her post to date, is part of an attempt by the US to show that Africa remains a key foreign policy priority.

Development issues – including food security, health and gender concerns – are expected to be high on the agenda.
