George Clooney arrested protesting against Sudanese leaders
George Clooney has been arrested outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington. He and others are protesting about the tactics that were used in Darfur and are now being used in southern Sudan, with the likely result of many thousands of people dying of starvation. Crops have been destroyed and now humanitarian aid is not being allowed in.
