Sources say George Clooney has been arrested — along with his father and several other activists — for protesting outside of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C.

They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world,

says Clooney's publicist. 

Clooney is reportedly pleased at this turn of events as it might draw attention to the crisis at hand. Clooney has been a long-time activist against the cruelty of the Sudanese government to its own people. Find a video from his recent short documentary and the complete story here.
