Bill Clinton in tribute to staffer killed in Kenya
NEW YORK (AFP) - Former US president Bill Clinton on Tuesday paid tribute to a "brilliant" young Harvard graduate working for his global foundation who was gunned down in the Kenyan mall massacre.
Dutch-born Elif Yavuz, who was heavily pregnant and due to give birth very soon, was killed along with her Australian-British architect husband Ross Langdon as Islamist gunmen stormed a Nairobi shopping mall.
Mr Clinton told CBS radio that Yavuz had been working on a health access program run by his Clinton Foundation to help get AIDS and malaria drugs around Africa.
"She actually worked in Tanzania. And I saw her just a couple weeks ago in Dar Es Salaam when I was there, but she was nine months pregnant, just a couple of weeks away from delivery," Mr Clinton said.
