Liberia's newest ambassador

Former US president Bill Clinton remains popular in many parts of Africa. Apparently, he's been named roving ambassador for Liberia by the country's leader Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Johnson-Sirleaf, who just completed her first six months in office, said at a donors' conference last week that her country isn't looking for fresh aid, but instead seeks new ideas for how to reconstruct.
