Angelina visits Syrian refugee camp in Jordan

ANGELINA Jolie is seen here meeting with refugees at the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan.

The actress, a UNHCR special envoy, continued to express solidarity with Syrian refugees and pay tribute to the Jordanian government and people for their strong commitment to refugee protection.

On her second visit to the region in three months, she said: "Civilians are being targeted. Many of those trying to flee are exposed to extreme danger. I appeal to all sides in the conflict to do all they can to ensure the safe passage of these innocent civilians." Jason Tanner/UNHCR/PA
