Hollywood star and human rights activist George Clooney has called for action to stop ongoing violence in Sudan.

He spoke to the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee after a secret visit to the region last week, and he warned of a growing humanitarian crisis there.

The Descendants star Clooney (50) said: β€œIt is absolutely without question a war crime that we saw first hand.” Clooney sneaked into Sudan with a camera crew to film the catastrophe β€” which included footage of a boy who had lost his hands. He called on the US to boost efforts to improve the situation in Sudan.
