Belgrade - Hollywood actress and director Angelina Jolie arrived on Thursday in Sarajevo for a conference on preventing sexual violence in conflicts.

As well as joining Friday's conference, Jolie is to hold meetings with top Bosnian officials and visit Srebrenica, where Serb forces killed around 8 000 Muslim boys and men in 1995, the Dnevi Avaz daily reported in its online edition.

She also has meetings lined up with victims of sexual violence during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, which pitted Serbs against Muslims and Croats.
