George Clooney And Father Released By Police

Actor George Clooney has been released by police following his arrest at a protest outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington DC.
The 50-year-old Hollywood star was led off in handcuffs with other protesters, including his 78-year-old dad Nick Clooney, after crossing a police line in the US capital.
Both were later released after paying bail of £63. They had been protesting over the Sudanese government's alleged blocking of aid to people hit by famine in the Nuba mountains.
Clooney jr said: "Best estimate is tens of thousands of people are going to die from starvation... this isn't a famine, this is a man-made tragedy by the government of Khartoum to get these people to leave.
"You never know if you are accomplishing anything... We hope it helps."
Gorgeous George has worked as an activist on behalf of the Sudanese people for some time, and had a meeting with President Obama on the subject the day before his arrest.
