Hollywood star George Clooney and his lawyer wife Amal have had a private meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss the crisis in Syria and Europe's efforts to help refugees.
The actor, who is in Germany for the Berlin Film Festival to showcase his new movie Hail, Caesar, was accompanied at the 40-minute meeting by David Miliband, the former British foreign secretary who heads the International Rescue Committee.
Mr Miliband said afterwards that they discussed what countries around the world could do to solve "what is a global problem, not just a Syrian problem or a German issue".
He praised Ms Merkel for "showing very strong leadership and example not just to Europe but globally" in the refugee crisis.
The Clooneys plan to visit a Berlin refugee shelter later.
