Angelina Jolie to raise awareness of war issues to British MPs

Angelina Jolie is set to address Members of Parliament (MPs) in the U.K. on Tuesday night (29May12) to raise awareness of sexual attacks in conflict areas.

Officials in Britain are preparing to set up dedicated teams to investigate rape in troubled countries as part of a new government initiative.


Foreign Secretary William Hague is due to introduce the scheme in London on Tuesday and as part of the launch, Jolie's movie In The Land Of Blood And Honey, about the 1990s Bosnian War, will be shown.


Following the screening of the film, which features a harrowing rape scene, Jolie will talk to the MPs and other guests about the issues she tackled in the movie and what the project means to her, according to Britain's The Independent newspaper.
