Angelina Jolie Visits Kurdish Refugee Camp in Iraq (Video)

Angelina Jolie holds out her hands to greet people while visiting a camp for displaced Iraqis on Sunday (January 25) in Khanke, Iraq.

The 39-year-old actress took a tour of the area before giving a speech, which you can watch below.

“Since I was last here in Iraq, another two million people have been forced from their homes. Mostly in the last six months – this time Iraqi citizens,” Angie said. “Too many innocent people are paying the price of the conflict in Syria and spread of extremism. The international community has to step up and do more.”

She continued, “It is not enough to defend our values at home. We have to defend them here, in the camps and in the informal settlements across the Middle East, and in the ruined towns of Iraq and Syria. We are being tested here, as an international community, and so far – for all the immense efforts and good intentions – we are failing.”

FYI: Angelina is wearing Dana Rebecca Designs earrings.
