Affleck calls for U.S. leadership in Congo

By Staff, wire reports

WASHINGTON -- Actor/director Ben Affleck says a desperate humanitarian situation in Congo requires a stronger display of U.S. leadership.

The husband of George Washington High School graduate Jennifer Garner told a House committee Wednesday that he has visited the region regularly in recent years, seeing the effects of violence as well as the potential of the African country.

In 2010, Affleck founded the East Congo Initiative, a nonprofit organization that helps direct aid to the war-torn region.
