Madonna returns to Malawi to launch girls school

LILONGWE, Malawi (AP) - October 25, 2009

The official who could not be named because he was not authorized to speak on the matter said Madonna arrived Sunday at about 2:30 p.m. (1230 GMT; 830 EDT) on Ethiopian Airlines.

The 51-year-old celebrity was accompanied by her four children - her daughters Lourdes and Mercy, and sons Rocco and David.

Madonna adopted the Malawian-born Mercy this year after she adopted David in 2008.

The official said Madonna would take part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the girls school on Monday.

Madonna's Raising Malawi charity helps care for some of the country's 1 million orphans.
