International aid pledges to be honoured, says Clegg

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is to urge rich nations to stick to their promises on increasing overseas aid.

He will reiterate the UK's commitment to raise spending on overseas aid to 0.7% of annual economic output from 2013 - it is currently 0.5%.

Addressing the United Nations in New York later, he will ask other developed countries to show the same "resolve".
