NPR's Jim Zarroli reports on the final day of the G-8 Summit in Calgary. President Bush offered $20 billion to Russia to help secure nuclear and biological weapons that could fall into the hands of terrorists. The gathering of foreign leaders from the eight most powerful countries in the world also pledged a renewed effort to provide aid to the world's poorest continent, Africa. Foreign aid activists complained that the G-8 aid plan does little to cut extreme poverty in half and put more children in school by 2015, which is a U.N. goal.
