Angelina Jolie visits quake-hit areas of Haiti


By Staff Writer

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie visited UN staff in Haiti on Tuesday and toured a children's refuge nearly four weeks after the country was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. The American actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, landed at a UN base in Port-au-Prince, where she was seen wearing a black jacket and tinted sunglasses. She then visited the SOS Children's Villages, in Santo, just outside the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. The charity has recently been embroiled in controversy over 33 children staying at the facility.
