Angelina Jolie to visit Syrian and Turkey



 In this handout image provided by UNHCR, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres and his Special Envoy Angelina Jolie continued their regional tour visiting Turkey on September 13, 2012 to hear accounts from Syrian refugees. On the third leg of a solidarity tour to support UNHCR's regional response to the Syrian refugee situation, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres and his Special Envoy Angelina Jolie spent the day visiting two of the 11 refugee camps along Turkey's border with Syria. The planning is for 17 camps to be established to enable Turkey to accommodate up to 36,000 more. Guterres and Jolie paid tribute to the Government of Turkey for keeping its borders open for anyone seeking asylum, adopting a system of temporary protection and providing assurance that no Syrian would be forcibly returned.."Syrians have a history of welcoming people in need," added Ms. Jolie. "Now it is their hour of need and I am grateful to Turkey, and all the neighboring countries for their extraordinary generosity.".During her visit to the camp, Ms. Jolie met with several families, all of whom had lost family members in the violence in Syria. One woman told her a story about a house that was bombed in her town and the entire family was killed. "We don't care about our house," the woman said. "We care about the blood of the people." Another woman told her a similar story where a family was killed, but with one survivor - a baby found cradled in her dead mother's arms. (Photo by JTanner/UNHCR via Getty Images)..
