US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has helped clear rubble and plant flowers as she visited two housing projects near Cape Town, South Africa.

Correspondents say she was in her element as she toured the Victoria Mxenge project, which she had visited while she was first lady in 1997 and 1998.

Stopping off at a second project, she called on staff to lend a hand to teams of women preparing ground for a new building. They cleared rubble from the site and planted flowers and a tree. "This is what I really believe in," she was quoted as saying during the tour.

When one woman asked if Mrs Clinton wanted to make a contribution she explained she had no money on her, and turned to Africa envoy Johnnie Carson, who drew a $50 note from his wallet.
