George Clooney Hopes For Peace In Darfur


If you follow New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof on Twitter, you know George Clooney is currently visiting Darfur. Kristof shared with the Internet that he and George are currently not showering while they visit the war-torn region.

Tonight on NBC Nightly News, George shared his hopes for the region with Ann Curry. George said that he doesn't see much change in Sudan since he last visited three years ago.

In the years that have passed since that visit, the International Criminal Court's prosecutor requested a warrant for the arrest of Umar al-Bashir, the president of Sudan, alleging genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. Still Bashir remains in power and the genocide continues. George hopes that a little celebrity-induced attention will raise international awareness.
