Angelina Jolie causes riot in Tunisia
Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie was forced to cut short her visit to Tunisian refugee camp after a mini riot broke out.
The actress - who is a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador - was on a trip to the African country and her arrival caused hysteria among the Libyan refugees at the Shusha camp on the Libyan border.
As she made her way through, the group - who have fled to Tunisia from their own war-torn country - chanted, "Angelina Jolie, we want to die for you!" and tried to get close to her.
A photographer for website X17 Online said: "The people were beyond excited to see her. There were thousands of refugees screaming her name and chanting. The crowd was closing in on her and her security detail; it was intense."
Because of the lack of security, the mother-of-six was forced to cancel half her visit and find shelter in a tent.
The photographer added: "When people found out Angelina was leaving early, they had mixed reaction. Some were upset but still enthusiastic to have her there.
"Angelina was forced to find shelter in a tent and she had to be protected by 30 military personal with machine guns. Angelina really took a risk by going all the way to the Libyan border."
Angelina - who is famed for charity work - was also forced to cancel plans to visit a Moroccan hospital in Tunisia.
