Dublin loses rat, no longer a Boom­town

The Times (South Africa) - - The Things You Need To Know Today -

Mu­si­cian and Live Aid supremo Bob Geldof has re­turned his Free­dom of the City of Dublin in a protest against Myan­mar leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who holds the same hon­our.

The Boom­town Rats singer slammed the No­bel peace lau­re­ate over treat­ment of the Ro­hingya Mus­lim mi­nor­ity, call­ing her a “hand­maiden to geno­cide”.

“Her as­so­ci­a­tion with our city shames us and we should have no truck with it, even by de­fault.’’
