Bono was in Paris this morning to receive the prestigious 'Knight of the Legion of Honour' medal from French President Jacques Chirac.

Bono, accompanied by his wife Ali, was honoured for his humanitarian work in campaigning for debt cancellation for the poorest countries and a better deal for Africa in the face of the AIDS pandemic. It is the second time in two years he has met Chirac- they met last year when Bono was pressing the French for greater aid for developing countries.

Before receiving the award this morning Bono had a private meeting with the French President to talk about the need for more money and greater action from European countries to fight AIDS and promote development in Africa.
