Amid the clatter of aid-laden helicopters flying in and out of the international airport at Port-auPrince yesterday, Clinton declared the United States would work closely with Haiti to restore electricity and communications. As President (Barack) Obama has said, we will be here today, tomorrow and for the time ahead, Clinton said as she stood next to President Rene Preval, whose palace was destroyed in last Tuesdays 7.0 magnitude temblor. The two countries were to unveil a statement today on how they planned to co-operate together. The breakdown in basic utilities, along with the destruction of the palace and key ministries, has left Mr Prevals government barely functioning and reliant on foreign donors for massive quantities of emergency aid. We are here at the invitation of your government to help you, Clinton told a press conference after an hour-long meeting with Preval and talks with US officials organising the relief operation. I know the resilience and strength of the Haitian people. You have been severely tested, said Clinton, the highest-ranking US official to visit the Caribbean nation since the quake. Haiti can come back stronger and better in the future, the chief US diplomat said. Mr Preval said he had just visited a man pulled out of the rubble alive after five days by US rescuers, and said her visit warmed our hearts. Spiderman targets UAE skyscraper KUALA LUMPUR: French climber Alain Robert, known as Spiderman for his death-defying antics, has set his sights on scaling the worlds tallest skyscraper, Dubais Burj Khalifa tower (pictured). The Gulf emirate of Dubai opened the glistening 828m concrete, glass and steel skyscraper, January 4. Ill have to do it ... maybe between January and April 2011, he said. I know the people of Dubai, they are interested (in seeing me climb), he added. The tower has been renamed Burj Khalifa in honour of the Abu Dhabi leader whose billions of dollars bailed out Dubai from its financial crisis last year. Hangmans noose for Chemical Ali BAGHDAD: Ali Hassan al-Majid, bet ter known as Saddam Husseins en forcer Chemical Ali was yesterday sentenced to death for ordering the gassing of Kurds in an Iraqi villag. State TV Al-Iraqiya channel said Majid would be killed by hanging having been found guilty of the notori ous attack in 1988 in the north of the country as the Iran-Iraq war ended.
