Simon and Garfunkel guitar raises funds for street children

A guitar signed by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel raised more than 10-thousand US dollars for East Timor’s street children when its owner, Prime Minister Jose Ramos-Horta, auctioned it on the Internet.

The Nobel laureate sold the Squier Bullet electric guitar on e-Bay, and gave the proceeds to the Street Children’s Association of Dili.

Mr Ramos-Horta bought the guitar in Memphis.

It now belongs to Estelah Ferreira in Australia, who posted the winning bid.
