Bob Geldof: The G8 should do more to help the food crisis

Celebrity campaigner Bob Geldof says the G8 Nations can and should do more to help countries like Ethiopia.

On a trip back to a refugee camp near the Ethiopia -Somalia border with ITV Africa Correspondent Rohit Kachroo he blasted the world's richest nations for breaking their aid promises to the poorest.

He also talked about the concept of "food security" which is something the Obama government are set to make a number of pledges on during the G8 meeting next week. Food security is a term used to describe both the availability and access to food for the world's poorest.

Food security across the continent of Africa is being threatened by the continuing rise of food prices.
