Clinton says US administration will block 'genocide' vote

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said the Obama administration will seek to block a controversial bill describing as genocide the World War I killing of Armenians by Turks.

A congressional panel on Thursday approved the resolution, paving the way for a possible vote by the House.

But Mrs Clinton said the administration would "work very hard" to prevent this.
