Actor George Clooney appeared on the "Today" show Wednesday, talking with host Ann Curry about his recent trip to the volatile border region between Sudan and South Sudan, which became an independent state last year.

In the interview, Clooney described the horrible loss of innocent life from aerial attacks, which he said he was "close enough to feel," and placed the blame on President Omar al-Bashir and other Sudanese government officials, whom he described as war criminals.
