DEMOCRAT Hillary Clinton and Republican John McCain won the US New Hampshire primaries. Clinton's victory over Barack Obama who had beaten her in Iowa confounded polling predictions. President Bush began his Middle East tour in Israel and the Palestinian West Bank in confident style, insisting that a peace deal could be signed before he leaves office. In Kenya efforts at resolving the dispute over the flawed presidential election were unsuccessful as President Kibaki went ahead with appointing ministers to his cabinet; 500 people died in tribal conflicts and thousands were homeless.
