[ September 30th 2001 ]

Lara Croft Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie has pleaded with her fellow countrymen not to punish displaced refugees fleeing Afghanistan for atrocities committed by terrorists sheltering in their country, the Glasgow Sunday Mail reports today.

In a interview with CNN's talk show host Larry King, Angelina spoke of the reaction from fellow Americans on her work with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, of which she was appointed a member several months ago.

She said: "I think for many people it's not a very popular thing to talk about. But they are families...just like our families...and they're a beautiful people and a tortured people. We are very fortunate in this country, with the freedoms we have. These women go through things that are unimaginable."

Angelina Jolie recently donated $1 million to help the refugees fleeing Afghanistan. The cash, equal to about 700,000, will go to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees' appeal. The UN is hoping to raise 185 million to fund humanitarian efforts in and around Afghanistan as tensions mount over a possible military strike in reprisal for terrorist attacks on the U.S.

UNHCR spokeswoman, in Geneva, Switzerland, said: "We are going to talk to Angelina about the lots of different ways she can help the refugees. She has been very active in supporting our work around the world."
