Hollywood actor George Clooney launched an initiative on Monday to track down and help bring to justice those funding and profiting from Africa's deadliest conflicts in a bid to fight corruption in war zones.

Clooney joined forces with US human rights activist John Prendergast in a project called The Sentry that aims to investigate the flow of money in and out of conflict zones and give policymakers the tools to take effective action.

Using data collection, field research and analysis technology, the initiative plans to expose how conflict is financed and profits laundered, with a website encouraging people to anonymously submit leaks and tips.
