Angelina Jolie Spotlights Child Soldiers
Angelina Jolie attends the trial of a Congolese warlord charged with using child soldiers held at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, on Tuesday (May 19).
The 33-year-old activist said the case against Thomas Lubanga is a “landmark trial for children.” She continued, “Children deserve special protection. Using children in conflict is a heinous crime and destroys the very fabric of a society. I imagined how difficult it must be for all the brave young children who have come to testify against him.”
One ICC attendee added, “I notice the petite figure which was supported by those shoes and that it was Angelina Jolie! She is much more beautiful in person than in any magazine or interview. If that’s what she looks like in print then she is not very photogenic… she spoke French to her colleagues.” More about Angie at Lauraware!
The United Nations estimates up to 250,000 child soldiers still fight in more than a dozen countries.
