After spending some time in Ethiopia, the south of France and on the Mediterranean coast, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt continued globe-trotting Friday - not for vacation but for a good cause.

Jolie, 34, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations' refugee agency, UNHCR, visited Iraqi refugees in Syria with Pitt, 45, and urged the world to not forget the thousands who have been displaced.
"Most Iraqi refugees cannot return to Iraq in view of the severe trauma they experienced there, the uncertainty linked to the coming Iraqi elections, the security issues and the lack of basic services," Jolie says in a statement released by the UNHCR.
"They will, therefore, be in need of continued support from the international community."

The actress's trip to Syria comes two months after Jolie returned to Iraq to visit a refugee camp and two weeks after she met with Somali refugees in Africa.
