Obama urges Africa to end 'cancer of corruption'

ADDIS ABABA:  US President Barack Obama called on Africa Tuesday to end "the cancer of corruption" to ensure continued progress, in a speech to the African Union.

"Nothing will unlock Africa's economic potential more than ending the cancer of corruption," Obama said, warning that it drained "billions of dollars" from economies that could be used for health or create employment.
