British Commission Calls For More Aid to Africa

A commission led by British Prime Minister Tony Blair releases its plan Friday to address problems affecting Africa. The 400-page report calls for an extra $25 billion to tackle issues such as poverty, AIDS, economic investment and international support. NPR's Ed Gordon talks with commissioner William Kalema, who worked on the report, and Emira Woods, co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus.
