Bono & Edge Support Amnesty Awards Ceremony in Dublin

@U2, September 18, 2013
By: Matt McGee

 

Bono and The Edge were on hand Tuesday for Amnesty International's annual Ambassadors of Conscience awards ceremony -- an award that U2 has previously won.

Bono presented the award to one winner, 16-year-old Malala Yousfzai, a Pakistani girl that was shot by the Taliban last year but survived to advocate for education and human rights in her country. Bono also gave an introductory speech for the evening's other winner, Harry Belafonte.

We shared a number of tweets from the event in our Twitter account, but here's one of the better photos of Bono presenting Yousfzai with her award.
