GENEVA (AP) — The U.N. refugee agency says its goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie is heading to Haiti to meet with earthquake victims.

The Hollywood star spoke with hospitalized Haitian survivors in the neighboring Dominican Republic on Monday.

UNHCR spokesman Andrej Mahecic said Jolie would travel to Haiti later Tuesday.

He provided no details of her planned itinerary for security reasons.

Jolie has previously visited Iraq, Thailand, Pakistan and other countries with UNHCR.
