Clinton pledges support for Somalia’s weak government

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Nairobi, Kenya on Thursday on the second full day of her African tour.

Clinton pledged to expand America’s support for Somalia’s weak interim government as it struggles against Islamic extremists. As she makes her way through Africa, economic development and human rights are also expected to be high on the agenda.

Emira Woods, the co-director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies, joins Martin Savidge to discuss Clinton’s agenda in Africa and U.S. goals in Somalia.
