Bill Clinton will not attend next month's conference
Former US President Bill Clinton has pulled out of a conference in Belfast next month to mark the 10th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.

President Clinton was to attend the event on 10 April along with other key players in the 1998 agreement.

A spokesperson said his decision was due to "changes to his schedule".

However, there is speculation his wife Hillary's campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination has taken precedence.
