Actor George Clooney and his father have been arrested at a protest outside the Sudanese 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 border region with South Sudan. Mr. Clooney, his father Nick and others, including Democratic U.S. Representative Jim Moran of Virginia and civil rights leader Ben Jealous, were arrested after being warned three times not to cross a police line outside the embassy. They were handcuffed and placed into a U.S. Secret Service van.

Mr. Clooney said earlier that he hoped to draw more attention to the issue and that if action was not taken in the next three to four months “we're going to have a real humanitarian disaster.”
