MaximsNewsNetwork: 17 June 2011: United Nations Refugee Agency: UNHCR: Altinouzu Camp, Turkey - On Friday, (17 June) UNHCR's Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie came to Altinouzu Camp, in Turkey where some 700 Syrians, fleeing upheaval have found shelter; this latest crisis in the Middle East has brought 10000 refugees into Turkey and displaced thousands inside Syria, both situations Jolie says she will be following closely. Jolie met families caught in the crossfire of the conflict and everywhere she went she was greeted with enthusiasm. Her support was much appreciated by these refugees. Syrian authorities have been widely criticized for their bloody repression of the protests that began earlier this year, part of a broader uprising in recent months across North Africa and the Middle East that has already toppled the long-standing regimes in Tunisia and Egypt and led to ongoing conflict in Libya. The UN human rights office says that as of mid-June, the number of people killed is believed to have exceeded 1100, many of them unarmed civilians; among them were women and children. Top UN officials, including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, have strongly urged President Bashar al-Assad to listen to the wishes and aspirations of the Syrian people and to take care to protect human lives.
