Angelina Jolie was left in tears after visiting a Syrian refugee camp today (11.09.12).
The 'Salt' actress - who is a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees - paid a visit to the Zaatari camp, which houses 27,000 people in Jordan, and delivered a speech portraying her 'concern' at the situation there.
Speaking with tears in her eyes, she said: 'I am very concerned, the world is very concerned. What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them.
'What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific. When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side, 'Who is going to help us as the months go on?' '
The 37-year-old actress - who raises six children with Brad Pitt - has visited a number of international trouble spots in her role at the UN.
In 2001 she spent 18 days in Sierra Leone and Tanzania and in recent years she took trips to Iraq, Chad and Afghanistan to assess the situation and bring attention to problems there.
