Clinton in Chile to offer support in aftermath of quake

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has arrived in earthquake-ravaged Chile to offer the devastated country moral and material support as it recovers from the deadly disaster.

Clinton flew into the capital of Santiago on Tuesday, delivering much-needed satellite communication equipment and a technician. It's a small portion of a first installment of what she says will be substantial U.S. relief assistance.

Before the weekend quake struck, Clinton had planned a longer stay in Chile, but she will now only spend a few hours there before heading to Brazil. Clinton is in the midst of a weeklong, six-nation tour of Latin America that has taken her already to Uruguay and Argentina.
