A Congolese student was reminded who was on top when US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked her husband Bill Clinton's view on a foreign policy issue. Clinton replied: "My husband is not secretary of state, I am ... If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion, I am not going to be channelling my husband." Former US President Bill Clinton currently undertakes humanitarian work and recently secured the release of two US journalists from North Korea. Top diplomat Clinton spent two days in the Democratic Republic of Congo to highlight the prevalence of sexual violence in the long-running conflict between rebel groups and the Congolese army. "I will be pressing very hard for not just assistance - to help those who are being abused and mistreated, in particular the women who are turned into weapons of war through the rape they experience - but also looking for ways to try to end this conflict," she said.
