LILONGWE: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived Sunday in the Malawian capital Lilongwe, becoming the first US chief diplomat to visit the southern African country.

A military guard of honour and groups performing traditional dances, chanting and beating drums welcomed her at Kamuzu International Airport.
Clinton will meet with President Joyce Banda, Africa’s second woman leader after Liberia’s Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, at her official residence State House, before a short trip to the US embassy.
