Angelina Jolie is in Iraq to witness firsthand the humanitarian crisis there, the United Nations Refugee Agency UNHCR has announced.
The actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, 32, flew from New York to Syria on Monday. In Damascus, she visited a UNHCR registration center and spend hours talking to Iraqi refugees in their homes.
Tuesday's journey took her to Iraq to meet with 1,200 refugees camped out in a makeshift outpost at the border, because they are unable to leave the country. She also witnessed dozens of Iraqis crossing into Syria.
"I have come to Syria and Iraq to help draw attention to the humanitarian crisis and to urge governments to increase their support for UNHCR and its partners," Jolie said in a statement. "My sole purpose in both countries is to highlight the plight of those uprooted by the war in Iraq."

Refugees with homes. Immigrants? No, Victims. Yes. Victims.
No worries, she’s just trying to get away from her boy toy Pitt.
And hopefully, she’ll stay there.
Did anyone ask her?
More doubtful that she would have gone if asked.
And yet her dad is very pro troops. I saw him Hannity/Colmes and was very happy to see him talk up the mission in Iraq. Guess Angie didn’t get his sense of logic!
When she got nekked in Alexander the Gay I guess...
Guess shes trying to get kidnapped. Some people will do anything to get their name in the paper.
That, and will she visit the troops. I personally think she is very wierd. I think Brad Pitt is too.
Picked a good time to be out of town.
Is she going to add an Iraqi child to her collection?
Don’t forget to ask the Christians in Iraq if they are being threatened and murdered by the proponents of the religion of peace.
That’s one ugly woman.
Her children should be her cause-celebre now, she really would be better served spending more of her time parenting her children while they are so young and a little less time campaigning for UN-leftie causes, imho.
If those lips were between her... Oh, better just stop there.
Hollow chick, chirping.
I agree, because it seems she is most often off at some locale championing human rights or filming in some exotic location, with the little humans charged to her care nowhere to be found. Something that won't do them much good now or later. She would do well to parent and nurture them now while they are so very young. We adults can hold off for her to wow us with her human rights issues at a later point. Zahara and Maddox and Shiloh and Pax may not be able to.
