The Man for Peace Award Goes to Bob Geldof

Irish rocker Bob Geldof has collected one more award. This time the musician gets the Man for Peace award in Rome that recognizes his campaigns against poverty.

Received the award from former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and Rome Mayor Walter Veltroni, Geldof briefly commented "Africa must be allowed to trade itself out of poverty."

Further he revealed that the situation in Africa was "not only intellectually absurd but also morally repulsive." Also, during the same occasion he urged the European Union to take the initiative at next month's World Trade Organization talks in Hong Kong.

Apart, the ceremony held on Rome's Capitoline Hill marked the opening of this year's World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.
