Angelina Visits Iraq

It's certainly a long way from Hollywood: Angelina Jolie visited Iraq for the third time on Tuesday to show support for the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis displaced from their homes. The UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador met with families in the district of Abu Ghraib, held children, and listened to people's stories. When she met an Iraqi who told her of his problems, the mother of six responded: "It takes a lot of strength for you to survive this life. I don't know if I would be strong enough to survive this." At the end of her day-long visit, Jolie reflected: "This is a moment where things seem to be improving on the ground, but Iraqis need a lot of support and help to rebuild their lives."
