Angelina Jolie meets flood victims in Pakistan

The United Nations says actress Angelina Jolie is visiting Pakistan to meet victims of the floods and highlight the need for international help.

Jolie was in the country Tuesday in her role as a “goodwill ambassador” for the U.N.’s refugee agency.

International relief agencies sometimes enlist celebrities to draw attention to their work and get more funds. The celebrities get to soften their image by being associated with good causes.

The U.N. gave no details of Jolie’s itinerary. – abcnews
