Anti-poverty campaigner Bob Geldof on Sunday lashed out at a BBC report that claimed millions of pounds raised for famine relief in Ethiopia by Band Aid in 1985 were used by rebels to pay for weapons."About Band Aid, not a single penny went to the armaments, not a pound, not a penny," the Irish rock star told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show.He added: "There is not a single shred of evidence that Band Aid or Live Aid money was diverted."
The BBC World Service reported claims that 95 percent of 100 million US dollars of aid which went to Ethiopia's Tigray province in 1985 was used by rebel forces to buy weapons.
