Actor and philanthropist George Clooney has contracted malaria in Sudan.
CNN host Piers Morgan reported that actor George Clooney has contracted malaria during his Sudan trip to promote peace in the war-torn country. The actor will be featured on Piers Morgan’s show, along with his father Nick, on Friday.
Morgan posted on Twitter: “George Clooney has contracted malaria following recent trip to Sudan”.
Piers later tweeted: “More Clooney – it’s his 2nd bout of malaria. Taking medication but feeling rough.”
The actor was in Sudan in December working with Google and the UN to help prevent civil war.
“We want to let potential perpetrators of genocide and other war crimes know that we’re watching, the world is watching,” Clooney said while in Sudan. “War criminals thrive in the dark. It’s a lot harder to commit mass atrocities in the glare of the media spotlight.”
