{SOS} Clinton helps South Africa bloom (BBC)
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has helped clear rubble and plant flowers as she visited two housing projects near Cape Town, South Africa.

The most senior diplomat in the US also danced as she was welcomed with music at the Victoria Mxenge Housing project, which she first visited 12 years ago.

When asked if she wanted to donate to the project, Mrs Clinton handed over $50 (30) borrowed from an aide.

Mrs Clinton is visiting South Africa on a tour of seven African nations.

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.

Oh, she's only visiting a housing project because Condi did it. :sarcasm:
