As all of you read in my last post, She went to Tunisia. I found another article about her visit with more information! here it is, hope you like it!

Angelina Jolie paid a visit to Tunisia this week. Unfortunately, this sparked some unrest near the Libyan border, where a crowd of refugees wreaked havoc.

“The people were beyond excited to see her,” says a witness, until it went awry.

There were thousands of refugees screaming her name and chanting. The crowd was closing in on her and her security detail; it was intense.”

For safety reasons, the actress and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador was forced to cancel half her visit, which included plans to visit a Moroccan hospital.

Before the commotion, she spoke with refugees who fled the fighting in Libya. Tunisia has received more than half of the outflow from the war-torn country.

Despite the upset, Jolie didn’t lose sight of her mission.

“The international community has done well to reinforce Tunisia’s remarkable relief effort,” she said in a statement excerpted by the UN official website.

“But with 2,500 people still crossing each day, we cannot let the funding dry up and we need to sustain the momentum,” Angelina Jolie said.

Here you can see a video of her in Tunisia: http://www.tmz.com/videos?autoplay=true&mediaKey=43ac04ff-82bb-4ca1-b485-208f336e4bd7

As we can see in many pictures she was surrounded of many pepole that were expecting her and she was really kind with all the refugees (we can also see it in the video).

This event has shown up also in the spanish press (El Mundo) and even in twitter:
