Angelina Jolie isn’t one to shy away from controversial topics, the director of the film In the Land of Blood and Honey that deals with the Bosnian War decided to speak out about the current situation in Syria. The Hollywood star said that the world must intervene.
“I think Syria has got to a point, sadly, where certainly some form of intervention is absolutely necessary,” Jolie told Al Jazeera Balkans in an interview shown on the channel’s Internet site.
“It’s so sad, it’s so upsetting, it’s so horrible what’s happening,” Jolie said. “At this time we just must stop the civilians being slaughtered. “When you see that kind of mass violence and murder on the street, you must do something,” added Jolie, who has served for years as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
