End digital divide, says Kofi Annan

The United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan has urged Indian business leaders to work closely with African countries to help them develop information technology.

He was on a visit to the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, the home of India's fastest growing information technology hub.

Mr Annan is due to fly to New York later today Saturday, ending a ten-day visit to South Asia also that took him to Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

He used the visit to urge India and Pakistan to resume their dialogue over Kashmir.
