Former US president Bill Clinton called Wednesday for strength in responding to the loss of flight MH17, declaring those who had downed the plane -- and provided the means to do so -- sided with a brutal vision of the world.Addressing a hall packed with scientists, policymakers and grassroots activists, Clinton singled out Dutch researcher Joep Lange, praising him for tireless work in bringing life-saving drugs to millions of people infected by HIV.Clinton said he had been moved by seeing a statement to the UN Security Council by Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans, who spoke of lives torn apart and who bitterly condemned delays in recovering the bodies.Clinton, a veteran campaigner in the fight against AIDS, set up a foundation in 2001 that has negotiated huge cuts in prices in antiretroviral drugs for poor countries.
