Geldof: world leaders aren't honouring poverty pledges

Anti-poverty campaigner Bob Geldof talking to ITV News' Africa correspondent Rohit Kachroo in Ethiopia.

Bob Geldof is known for his pioneering charity work in Africa, and this week ITV News follows the former singer back to Ethiopia, where he has been raising the issue of famine and climate change in the country.

Geldof tells ITV News' Africa Correspondent Rohit Kachroo that the leaders of the G8 meeting later this week are more than capable of ending poverty and that they have failed to adhere to aid targets set in Gleneagles in 2005.

However, the American hosts seem to be taking the matter seriously as they invite African leaders to join the summit.

The Ethiopian Prime Minister will be asking Barack Obama why the United States has not done enough to fulfil its pledges, but he accepts that Britain has done everything that it can to help.
