Angelina Jolie has flown to a border camp in Tunisia to meet refugees who have fled violence in Libya.

The actress visited in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

The UNHCR said in a statement that Angelina, who has a brood of six children with boyfriend Brad Pitt, urged more international aid for the refugees, and the Jolie-Pitt Foundation had also made an "important donation" for the refugee operation.

Angelina also praised the government of Tunisia for its generosity toward the refugees. Tunisia saw an uprising in January that overthrew a dictator and sparked revolts around the Arab world.
