Madonna arrives in Malawi amid adoption row

Air traffic controllers say Madonna's plane has landed in Malawi, where she is

expected to begin proceedings this week to adopt a girl as her second child from

the impoverished African country.

The controllers spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised

to discuss the matter with reporters.

Madonna adopted Malawian-born David in 2006. The girl Madonna is hoping to

adopt now is about 4 years old and her unmarried mother died soon after she was

born, a welfare official and a person involved in the adoption proceedings have

said. They also spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is considered

sensitive.
