Clinton in Maldives on Tour of Post-Tsunami Reconstruction


Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is in the Maldive Islands, southwest of India, his third stop on a U.N. tour to promote reconstruction after last year's devastating tsunami.

Mr. Clinton arrived Saturday in the capital, Male, after a flight from Sri Lanka. He is visiting the region as a special U.N. envoy.

Spokesmen for Mr. Clinton say his trip to one of the Maldive islands was canceled due to poor weather, and dismissed reports the cancellation was related to his health.

They say his trip will otherwise continue as planned on Sunday, when he is scheduled to participate in meetings in Male.

Mr. Clinton began his regional trip in India. From the Maldives, he is scheduled to visit Indonesia's battered Aceh province.
