WASHINGTON (AP) — 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.

Spokesman Jay Carney joked that Bono and Jim Messina — President Barack Obama's campaign manager — were forming a new band. Messina also visited the White House on Tuesday. Carney says Obama did not meet with Bono.
