Angelina Jolie visits Libya
American actress Angelina Jolie began a 2-day visit to Libya on Wednesday (October 12th). Jolie, a UNHCR "goodwill ambassador", plans to meet with civilians, aid groups and UNHCR representatives in Misrata and Tripoli.
"I have come to Libya for a variety of reasons, to see a country in transition at every level and to witness efforts to fully realise the promise of the Arab Spring," The Telegraph quoted Jolie as saying.
"The country faces a host of challenges, including internally displaced people, refugees, rule of law, security, sanitation, education, health and other humanitarian needs. All of these pieces must be delivered and coordinated properly in an environment of reconciliation and justice," Jolie said.
