Angelina Jolie visits Haiti

2010-06-20 14:18

Port-au-Prince - Actress Angelina Jolie has quietly returned to Haiti for meetings with Haitian and UN officials.

The weekend visit by the "goodwill ambassador" for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was not announced to keep it low-profile.

UN officials confirmed the visit when asked by The Associated Press. They agreed to discuss the trip only if not quoted by name because they were asked not to share details of Jolie's visit.

Jolie has visited Haiti several times. In February she met with orphans and other earthquake victims.

The actress has also visited Iraq, Thailand, Pakistan and other countries on behalf of the UN refugee agency.
