George Clooney blames South Sudan famine on nation's elite

George Clooney, who has appeared in such films as “Ocean’s Eleven” and “Syriana,” has used his stardom to bring attention to humanitarian crises in South Sudan and neighboring Sudan.

In an interview he said, Famine in South Sudan could be brought to an end if world leaders would step in and keep local politicians from fighting over and wasting funds that could help feed the starving nation.

Describing the famine as “government-made,” Clooney said South Sudan’s political elite are fanning ethnic tensions to build fortunes in the oil-rich nation.
