Mrs Amal Clooney on marriage and marbles

The new wife of Hollywood star George Clooney, lawyer Amal Clooney, has had talks with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras as part of a campaign to return the Parthenon sculptures from Britain.

Greece has hired her London law firm to ramp up its claim to the sculptures.

The 5th Century BC treasures, known as the Elgin Marbles in the UK, are kept in the British Museum in London.

Amal Clooney addressed a news conference where she maintained the repatriation "will benefit both countries and indeed all of mankind".
