Hollywood star George Clooney will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss the migrant and refugee crisis.

Speaking at the international premiere at the Berlin film festival for the “Hail, Caesar!”, Mr Clooney said they’ll meet with Chancellor Merkel to talk about and find out what they can do to help handle the refugee crisis as well as the message they should pass across. He also plans to visit a refugee centre.

Last year more than a million refugees came to Europe, most of them fleeing war and poverty.

The huge influx of migrants and refugees has made some EU countries tighten their asylum rules and close their borders.
