U2 frontman Bono has threatened to launch an aggressive protest campaign if rich countries refuse to combat world poverty.

The PRIDE (IN THE NAME OF LOVE) star has threatened a rise in noisy civil disobedience if the problem isn't tackled in struggling third world countries.

He says, "The people I represent - the activists from my community - will take a very, very different tack in the next few years if these trends are to continue in Africa."
