Geneva - The UN refugee agency says goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie is currently visiting Libya, though in a personal capacity.
A spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Adrian Edwards, said on Tuesday that the US actress nonetheless plans to meet with aid groups and UNHCR representatives in the country.
The Geneva-based agency said last week that it was discussing a bigger role for Jolie after receiving $5m in donations from her over the past decade.
Jolie has visited dozens of countries to promote the cause of refugees during her 10 years as goodwill ambassador for UNHCR.
Thousands of Libyans fled their homes during the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, though many have returned since the strongman's downfall.
