Angelina Jolie Stands In Solidarity With Libyans On Personal Visit, As UNHCR Consider Her Role
Angelina Jolie on Wednesday praised Libyans' "extraordinary" participation in their home-grown revolution, and said she stood in solidarity with the Libyan people.
The actress, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees was on a visit to Libya, where she met aid groups and UN country representatives - in a "personal capacity", according to UNHCR.
The Geneva-based agency said last week that it was discussing a bigger role for Jolie after receiving five million dollars (£3.2m) in donations from her over the past decade.
The actress has visited dozens of countries to promote the cause of refugees during her 10 years as goodwill ambassador for UNHCR.
Thousands of Libyans fled their homes during the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, though many have returned since the strongman's downfall.
