George Clooney arrested at Sudanese embassy protest

George Clooney has been arrested during a protest at the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.

The actor was arrested for civil disobedience after he crossed a police line outside the embassy.

Clooney has recently warned US lawmakers of a humanitarian crisis in the volatile border area between Sudan and South Sudan.

He has also lobbied US President Barack Obama for help to stop the violence.

The BBC's Paul Adams in Washington said George Clooney was probably "expecting" to be arrested.
