Clinton pushes Nigeria on terrorism, corruption
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is in Nigeria to urge authorities there to do more to fight terrorism and clamp down on corruption.
Clinton arrived in the capital of Abuja on Thursday and was meeting Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, other officials and civic leaders to make the case.
Nigeria has been hit with a wave of terrorist attacks claimed by the radical Islamist group Boko Haram, which sympathizes with al-Qaida. The west African country is also plagued with endemic corruption.
