So that's why she left LA!

Angelina Jolie made her third trip to Iraq on behalf of the UN Refugee Agency, and the Oscar winner spent the day visiting with several families displaced due to the war. Jolie toured the Chikouk camp in northern Baghdad's Kadhimiyah neighbourhood as part of a one-day visit to the country, according to UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokeswoman Abeer Etefa.

Before she left, Jolie told locals: "I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation. We hope that UNHCR and the government will support you in getting a piece of land. You need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq."
