Hillary Clinton unveils US Pakistan aid projects

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced aid projects worth $7.5bn (£5bn) for Pakistan at the start of talks in the capital, Islamabad.

The five-year package, which was agreed by Congress last year, includes projects for two hydro-electric dams.

Mrs Clinton said the US wanted to show it cared about ordinary Pakistanis, not just securing Islamabad's co-operation in the fight against militants.

She is en route to a major donor conference in Afghanistan on Tuesday.
