Aung San Suu Kyi and Bono joined forces yesterday as the Myanmar democracy activist's European tour moved from the home of the Nobel Peace Prize to the land of U2.

The pair spent more than an hour answering questions at an Oslo conference of peace mediators at the end of Suu Kyi's four-day visit to Norway.

Then they jetted together to the Irish capital, Dublin, for an evening concert in her honour.

Bono, who wrote the 2000 hit "Walk On" in praise of Suu Kyi's long exile from her family and dedicated U2's 2009 world tour to her, had never met her before.
