Angelina Jolie on Thursday visited a settlement for displaced Iraqis in northwest Baghdad in her role as a goodwill ambassador for UNHCR. The actor met four families whose members said their children could not go to school and they could not afford to pay for medical treatment, the UN refugee agency said. Jolie said during her one-day trip that there is progress in returning Iraqis to their homes after years of war, but more needs to be done, according to UNHCR.
This is a moment where things seem to be improving on the ground, but Iraqis need a lot of support and help to rebuild their lives, the agency quoted Jolie as saying. It was the actor's third trip to Iraq.
UNHCR estimates that 1.6 million Iraqis were displaced within the country by sectarian violence, and that 300,000 have returned home amid improving security. It says hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees live in neighboring countries, mostly in Syria and Jordan.

But earthquake scientist Ken Gledhill of GNS Science said the shift illustrated the huge force of the tremor, the biggest in the world so far this year.
"Basically, New Zealand just got a little bit bigger is another way to think about it," he said.While the southwest of the South Island moved about 30 centimetres closer to Australia, the east coast of the island moved only one centimetre westwards, he said.
The biggest quake in New Zealand in 78 years caused only slight damage to buildings and property when it struck the remote southwest Fiordland region of the South Island last Thursday.A small tsunami was generated by the earthquake, with a tide gauge on the West Coast of New Zealand recording a wave of one metre.
The South Island
The South Island is sparsely populated and brimming with outdoor adventure. You may see landscapes and scenery that you have not seen before, packaged in the most beautiful and moving of environments.
One popular way to see the South Island is a drive that starts at Christchurch, heads to Mt. Cook, down to Queenstown, over to Fiordlands NP, up through Westland NP, and crossing to the North Island using the ferry from Picton to Wellington.
Fiordland National Park
New Zealand is famous for it’s national parks and there are heaps to explore. We recommend the Fiordland National Park. A nominated World Heritage area on the south west corner of the South Island of New Zealand. It’s New Zealand’s largest National Park as well as the largest National Park in the world. The scenery is breathtaking you wont believe until you see for yourself. You will witness steep mountains, waterfalls and exotic rainforests.
Within the Fiordland National Park you will experience New Zealand’s most beautiful landscape - Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound which attracts thousand of visitors every day. Other attractions include the Routeburn and Milford tracks, two of New Zealand’s Great Walks which pass through 32 kilometres of Fiordland National Parks. There is also the 580 meter high Sutherland Falls to see on the Milford Track, one of thousands of waterfalls in the park.
Milford sound is Awesome, the mountains tower to 6,000 feet and the water looks still and deep. The main spot is Mitre Peak at 6,024 feet. You can take a boat trip down the sound to the Tasman Sea surrounded by the towering peaks of the majestic Fiordland National Park. This has to be one of the highlights of this fantastic experience and a great way to discover the many sights on offer.
Milford Sound is the Jewel of the Fiordland of New Zealand. It is said by many who have visited to be one of the most beautiful places on earth and in fact it has been voted one of the worlds top travel destinations and New Zealand’s most famous tourist destination. It is a must see for any visitor coming to New Zealand.
Don’t forget to bring your camera as you will get some amazing breathtaking photos of this incredible place.
Doubtful Sound is the second largest of the 14 fjords in Fiordland National Park and is three times longer and ten times larger than Milford Sound. Doubtful Sound is recognized for its wilderness nature and wildlife.
It is recommended you take a cruise across Lake Manapouri (New Zealand’s prettiest lakes) to West Arm of the Lake then coach over the Wilmot Pass Road, stopping along the way at the Wilmot Pass lookout point to experience some breath taking views of Doubtful Sound. Stop by at Deep Cove, an arm of Doubtful Sound and take a tour of the highly impressive Manapouri Underground Power Station (New Zealand’s largest hydroelectric power station)
The cruise around Doubtful Sound is truly awesome and you will get to enjoy the views of pristine forest, pure rock walls and falling waterfalls. Doubtful Sound really does have breath taking scenery you will never forget.
Wildlife found in Doubtful Sound includes bottlenose dolphins, New Zealand fur seals and Fiordland crested penguins.
Mount Cook is the highest Mountain in New Zealand and a popular tourist destination. Mt Cook National Park located in the Canterbury region is another National Park that you must see.Mt Cook and its neighboring area is an alpine park that is part of the South Westland World Heritage area. It has the world?s longest ski run, down the Tasman Glacier and Hooker Glacier. The park does not have a lot of trees or plants and is best portrayed as a snow covered rocky setting. The Ball Pass here is a challenging 3-day alpine crossing of the Mount Cook Range and allows close views of New Zealand’s highest mountains.

The St. Chapelle was commissioned by King Louis IX to house Christ's crown of thorns and was completed on April 26, 1248. The stained glass walls are considered to be among the most impressive in the world. Visitors can either visit the church during the day or enjoy a classical concert there in the evening.
King Louis XV vowed that if he recovered from an illness, he would build a church in honor of patron saint of Paris, St. Geneviève. Foundations were laid in 1758, but the building wasn't completed until 1789. In 1851 a French physicist demonstrated the rotation of the earth using a 67 meter pendulum beneath the dome. The Pantheon is the oldest large-scale dome in Rome. It is one of the best preserved of all Roman buildings. It has been in continuous use throughout its history.
The most famous cathedral in the world is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. Construction began in 1163 during the reign on King Louis VII and has stood as a symbol of Paris for almost nine centuries. On the top of the building sit 13 statues; 12 are the apostles and one is a statue of the architect himself.
Pointe Zero located just in front of Notre Dame, this is the point where from which all distances in France are measured.

The Seine is a slow-flowing major river and commercial waterway. It is also a tourist attraction, with excursion boats offering sightseeing tours of the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche within the city of Paris. It terminates in the Bay of the Seine region of the English Channel and is navigable by oceanic transports. Over sixty percent of its length from Burgundy near the Swiss Alps is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating.There are 37 bridges over the River Seine just within Paris and dozens more spanning the river outside of the city. The average depth of the Seine today at Paris is about eight metres. Until locks were installed to artificially raise the level in the 1800s, however, the river was much shallower within the city most of the time, and consisted only of a small channel of continuous flow bordered by sandy banks. Today depth is tightly controlled and the entire width of the river between the built-up banks on either side is normally filled with water. The average flow of the river is very low, only a few cubic metres per second, but much higher flows are possible during periods of heavy runoff.
You will discover great statues, Monuments and stationed river boats (a couple of them are coffee shops). You will enjoy fantastic views on the river and key monuments, such as the Louvre and Notre-Dame. Don't forget that Paris is the largest and most important city on the river.
One of the largest and most visited museums in the world, and possibly the most famous of them all. Louvre is one of Paris's must-visit place. The Louvre was built in several stages. It was first built in the 16th century when the Royal family started to move near the fortress of the Louvre.The name of the main architect was Pierre Lescot, who was appointed in 1546 by the king. The immense building had 2 courtyards and was 2 stories high. Its architecture combines French and Italian features. About a decade later, Catherine de Medici started with another palace project, the Tuileries on the west side of the Louvre. Later, during the second empire, between 1853 and 1857, the Louvre was massively extended by Visconti and Lefuel.
The latest addition to the Louvre was the glass pyramid entrance, one of the finest examples of a combination of mordern and historic architecture.
The last buildings of the palace were built in the second half of the 19th century. It is only in 1989 that an important addition to the Louvre has been completed – a 70 x 70 meters big, underground reception hall for the visitors of the museum, lit with the natural coming from the glass pyramid built on its roof.
Designed by American Chinese architect Ieoh Ming Pei, the pyramid has a square base with each side 35 meters long. It is covered by almost 700 glass panes and the whole mythology has been created around their exact number (678 according to some people, 666 according to the others), as having a special meaning, or a magic power.
