Can George Clooney protect his wife?

Pregnant Amal Clooney is expecting twins but even the joy of impeding motherhood could not overshadow the scary reality that she is a target of international terrorists.

The Oxford educated 39-year-old attorney will give birth to two babies in June, but as she works for justice for Yazidis victims she reveals that she lived in fear because of her job.

Clooney worked in Beirut for a UN Tribunal investigating the assassination of Lebanon's prime minister in 2005 and the day after she arrived the airport was bombed by Israel.

"There are times when I would look at parked cars with trepidation," she told The Economist magazine 1843 in the February and March issue.

Describing her job of "working to bring the leaders of IS before an international court for inflicting genocide on the Yazidis," Clooney revealed the horrors of her duties.

The mother-to-be of twins described interviewing victims to build her case, saying they were "The most harrowing witness statements I've ever taken."

Described as "warm, charming and wonkish," George Clooney's wife expressed personal fears that her work would not deliver justice for her clients. "If the ICC can't prosecute the world's most evil terror group, what is it there for?" she asked.

Do you think George should be worried about Amal's safety? Sound off in comments below.
