Clooney, congressmen to protest at Sudan embassy
George Clooney, others to protest at Sudan embassy over allegations of humanitarian crisis
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Actor George Clooney will highlight a protest planned for Friday at Sudan's embassy in Washington.

The protesters accuse Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, of provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains in the county's border region with South Sudan.

Others expected to attend the protest include Clooney's father, Nick; NAACP President Ben Jealous; Martin Luther King III and congressmen including Virginia Democrat Jim Moran.



Another Virginia congressman, Republican Frank Wolf, returned from a trip to South Sudan last month and received reports from refugees accusing al-Bashir of orchestrating a campaign of ethnic cleansing, mass murder and rape.
