Question of the Day
NEW DELHI — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is in India for security and counterterrorism talks as the two countries try to broaden their relationship and manage mutual concerns about Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Mrs. Clinton, who arrived in New Delhi late Monday, will spend Tuesday in discussions with senior Indian officials. The talks are a new round of U.S.-India strategic dialogue established last year to deepen ties between the world’s oldest and largest democracies.
The Obama administration is keen to allay Indian concerns of resurgence in Islamic extremism following the planned withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan that began this month, the officials said.
Mrs. Clinton is expected to outline the drawdown strategy and stress that the United States will not support Afghan reconciliation with insurgents unless it is inclusive and protects the rights of minority groups, religions and women, the officials said.

Millions of South African schoolchildren began their day by singing a special version of “Happy Birthday” to Mr. Mandela, leading worldwide chorus of birthday wishes.
Photos released of Mr. Mandela show him smiling broadly while sitting in a yellow arm chair surrounded by relatives. Another features him with family and former wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, near a large cake with his image on it.
