Bono Meets with Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and U2 lead singer Bono
have met in the Oval Office to discuss the administration's development work in Africa.

The White House says the social activist singer joined with Obama, along with members of his national security staff, to talk about ways to make sure U.S. foreign aid is effective. They also discussed opportunities for using innovation and technology to drive economic growth in Africa.

The meeting Friday comes as the administration prepares for several international summits where development will be on the agenda.
