Hollywood actor George Clooney and his wife, the human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin Clooney, have met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel behind closed doors to discuss the refugee crisis. George Clooney is in Berlin for the Berlin Film Festival.
A foundation set up by George and Amal Clooney is to fund public schools for 3,000 Syrian refugee children in Lebanon. Close to 200,000 Syrian refugee children in Lebanon are currently out of school.

The 67th Berlinale, Berlin's international film festival, opened with a star-studded gala and talk from film artists about politics and resistance.
