Angelina Jolie Takes In War Crimes Trial In The Hague

On her way to the Cannes Film Festival where she’s eagerly awaited by her man Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie first made her way to The Hague to sit in on a war crimes trial today. The actress attended the trial as a sign of solidarity with the children testifying against Congo militia leader Thomas Lubanga.

48-year-old Lubanga stands accused of abducting children as young as 11-years-old and forcing them to train as soldiers, with the girls in the group subjected to sexual slavery.

The actress, who acts as a goodwill ambassador for the refugee agency
of the United Nations, said in a statement, “I imagined how difficult
it must be for all the brave young children who have come to testify
against him.”
