Angelina Jolie Visits Tunisia, Riot Ensues

by at . Comments

Angelina Jolie paid a visit to Tunisia this week. Unfortunately, this sparked some unrest near the Libyan border, where a crowd of refugees wreaked havoc.

"The people were beyond excited to see her," says a witness, until it went awry.

There were thousands of refugees screaming her name and chanting. The crowd was closing in on her and her security detail; it was intense."

For safety reasons, the actress and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador was forced to cancel half her visit, which included plans to visit a Moroccan hospital.

Before the commotion, she spoke with refugees who fled the fighting in Libya. Tunisia has received more than half of the outflow from the war-torn country.

Despite the upset, Jolie didn't lose sight of her mission.

"The international community has done well to reinforce Tunisia's remarkable relief effort," she said in a statement excerpted by the UN official website.

"But with 2,000 people still crossing each day, we cannot let the funding dry up and we need to sustain the momentum," Angelina Jolie said.

As always, we admire her dedication to such important, humanitarian causes and encourage others to follow her lead and find out how they can help.

She has the resources to do what any decent human should do. I'm tired of her being applauded for it. And frankly given her filthy past all the good she ever does will feel fake to me. She could disappear today and I would just be glad not to have to hear her name again.

She is amazing! But she should not place her life in danger like that! Think of her six kids and Brad!I am sure he is very stress and worry. She has done enough it is time to take care of her own babies. Think what would they do without a mother if something happen to her.
