In pictures: Preparing for Clinton
Preparations are being made across South Asia for next week's historic visit by US President Bill Clinton - the first by an American president in over 20 years.


Security is tight and the president will be travelling in aircraft and vehicles specially flown in for the visit



Mr Clinton will visit the legendary Taj Mahal in Agra where workers tend to the lawns around the mausoleum.



In the Indian capital Delhi, roads are being resurfaced and crossings painted



But scenes such as this one of a worker carrying a heavy load will be carefully screened from his view



Bill Clinton will also be the first US president to visit Bangladesh and will be taken to a local school



But the presidential visit is not being welcomed by all
