WASHINGTON — The White House says Vice President Joe Biden has met with U2 frontman Bono to discuss global development, AIDS and efforts to fight poverty.

The singer and activist has been a leading advocate for Africa, drawing attention to issues ranging from poverty and hunger to AIDS.

Messina also visited the White House on Tuesday. Carney says Obama did not meet with Bono.
