Jolie appeals over refugees' plight

Angelina Jolie is urging the world to keep helping Tunisia with its refugee crisis as thousands of people flood in from the country's war-torn neighbour Libya.

The Hollywood beauty is a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

She heaped praise on Tunisia for the way it has been dealing with the refugees after meeting the Tunisian foreign minister at the end of a two-day visit to the country.

Angelina offered the country her "solidarity", state news agency TAP said.

She visited the Tunisia-Libya border area on Tuesday before ending her trip the following day.

The UNHCR says more than 400,000 people have fled from Libya over the last month amid fighting between rebels and leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
