CAIRO, Egypt - George Clooney lobbied Wednesday for Egypt's help in getting protection for victims of Darfur's increasing violence.
The Oscar-winning actor met with Gamal and Suzanne Mubarak - the powerful son and wife of Egypt's president - and with Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit in his campaign to bring relief to the war-torn region of western Sudan.
Clooney said he was focusing on trying to find some way to at least ensure protection for those who have been displaced in the fighting.
"We are still talking about all the problems in Darfur right now," Clooney said. "We are hoping to just constantly keep the conversation going on humanitarian issues, that's our big goal, trying to stay out of the political arena and just trying to find humanitarian issues."

With Republicans out of power, will be interesting to see if her brand of shrill screaming lunacy wanes in popularity as more reasonable minds find their way onto the airwaves, and shows like Hannity And Colmes lose their market share...who knows, maybe she and Ann (Potty Mouth) Coulter can open a Rag Time Blues Club together. If either her or Ann Coulter would get married, we would have to call the wedding "Taming of The Shrew".
I'm sure the designer has some kind of lame excuse for this occurrence, but for $8,500 a woman should have some peace of mind that this kind of social faux pas does not occur!
Laura Bush Among Four Ladies In Red
First Lady, Three Others Wear Same Dress For Kennedy Center Honors
(CBS) Every woman who's ever attended a formal party has had the same concern: What if someone else shows up in the same dress?
As CBS News correspondent Thalia Assuras reports, that's exactly what happened to first lady Laura Bush at Sunday's Kennedy Center Honors, always one of Washington's biggest nights for stars, and glamorous fashion.
With guests in the spotlight at the exclusive White House receptions that go with the ceremony, the designer gowns are always scrutinized.
And on Sunday, four women at the reception wore the exact same $8,500 Oscar de la Renta dress, Mrs. Bush among them.
Letitia Baldridge, Jacqueline Kennedy's chief of staff and White House social secretary, says the gown was beautiful, but oh, what a faux pas!
"They all should have congratulated one another on their good taste and the fact that they could afford the dress. … Jacqueline Kennedy, when she was first lady, made sure, and her couturiers made sure, that nobody else wore that dress that season."
