• Former US national security advisor Berger dead


    WASHINGTON, D.C.: Former US national security advisor Sandy Berger, who aided president Bill Clinton during the Balkan wars, died Wednesday, according to his colleagues. Berger, 70, passed away after battling cancer, the Albright Stonebridge Group, a consultancy firm he co-founded with former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, said. President Barack Obama led the tributes to Berger, who was the top national security official at the White House between 1997 and 2001. “Sandy devoted himself to strengthening American leadership in an uncertain world,” Obama said in a statement. “Today, his legacy can be seen in a peaceful Balkans, our strong alliance with Japan, our deeper relationships with India and China.”
