Jolie gets filming permit back

Angelina Jolie has had her filming permit returned by Sarajevo authorities after it was briefly withdrawn last week following protests from an association of women raped during the Bosnian war.
The Hollywood star's Bosnian producer Edin Sarkic said he had received the written permit and Ange and her crew will start filming in Sarajevo in November.
The film is a wartime love story between a Bosnian woman and a Serb man but more details are not known.
Rumours spread that the film was about a rape victim who falls in love with her rapist. This outraged an association of raped women in Bosnia who branded the story insulting and pressed the Sarajevo minister of culture to cancel Angelina's filming permit.
The minister reissued it after Sarkic persuaded him the rumours were not true by letting him read the script.
