As a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Jolie paid a visit to the refugee camp set up in Jordan which currently houses almost 30,000 Syrians.
Syrian refugees stuck in a dust-blown camp in Jordan gave gruesome accounts of civilians incinerated in their country's civil war to U.N. special envoy and actress Angelina Jolie on Tuesday, moving her to tears.
"Little children who were asked what they saw described body parts separated and burnt people being pulled apart like chicken. A little 9-year-old girl said that," Jolie told reporters.
Jolie said it was truly painful to not be able to answer why a solution has not been reached up until now to tackle the refugee crisis.
Meanwhile, the UNHCR has announced that there are currently 250,000 displaced Syrian refugees. The distribution is as follows: 85,197 Syrian refugees have sought shelter in Jordan, 78,431 refugees are staying in camps in Turkey, 66,915 refugees are in Lebanon and 22,563 refugees are in Iraq.
