Angelina Jolie: Pays visit to "heartbreaking" refugee camp in Syria
Top Hollywood star Angelina Jolie cried as she visited a Syrian refugee camp this week.
Jolie is a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and paid a visit to the Zaatari camp, which houses 27,000 people in Jordan.
The 37-year-old star delivered a speech expressing her concern at the situation, and described hearing local stories as "horrific".
Brad Pitt's partner, in an emotional talk, has said: "I am very concerned, the world is very concerned. What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no-one is able to find a solution for them.
"What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific. When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side, 'Who is going to help us as the months go on?'"
The actress, who has six children with Brad Pitt, has visited a number of international trouble spots in her role at the UN.
She spent 18 days in Sierra Leone and Tanzania, in 2001.
In the more recent times, she took trips to Iraq, Chad and Afghanistan to bring attention to problems there.
