Angelina Jolie Heads to Iraq on Behalf of Syrian Refugees

Angelina Jolie traveled to Baghdad yesterday to continue her advocacy work with the UN on behalf of Syrian refugees. Her travels have already taken her to Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan, where she visited a refugee camp. Angelina, a special envoy for the UN's refugee agency, has met with many political leaders so far, and in Iraq, she had a discussion with Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari at his office. Today, she was in Erbil, north of Baghdad, for more meetings with leaders of the country's semi-autonomous Kurdistan. In both cities, Angelina encouraged Iraq to host Syrian refugees fleeing violence in their home country and to keep an eye out especially for ways to help children.
