George Clooney Brings A Message To The Sudan

George ClooneyGeorge Clooney has returned to the Sudan in a bid to raise fresh awareness about a possible upcoming civil war which will split the African nation in two.

The movie star and his journalist father Nick visited Darfur in 2008 and shot a film chronicling the atrocities of genocide there for unaware Americans, and now Clooney has returned to the nation in the hope of raising awareness of a coming storm of conflict.

The Southern Sudanese will vote for independence in January and that's likely to split Africa's largest country in two, and prompt a north-south war - something Clooney and United Nations officials are keen to avoid.

Speaking to TV news reporter Ann Curry, who is accompanying Clooney on his trip back to the Sudan, the actor says, "If you knew a tsunami, or (Hurricane) Katrina or a Haiti earthquake was coming, what would you do to save people?"

The movie star has reportedly spent the past week traveling to remote, conflict-prone areas of Sudan's south, including a mass grave and the ruins of the town of Abyei, which was largely burned to the ground during a conflict in 2008.
