Chinese state media took a swipe at Hillary Clinton on Friday, saying she was either ignorant of the facts about the Asian nation's investment in Africa or was ignoring them.

The acerbic comments from the official Xinhua news agency come after Clinton, while on an official visit to Africa, appeared to question China's motives in the region.

China has poured billions into Africa in recent years, emerging as the continent's main trading partner and a major source of investment for infrastructure. But its presence has also sparked concerns regarding claims of labour abuses and corruption.
