Both are expected to visit the camp, which shelters those who have fled the four-year conflict in neighbouring Syria.

The visit is the latest in a series of trips the Hollywood star has made to Turkey, which hosts the greatest number of refugees in the world - 1.59 million, according to the latest UN figures.
