Angelina Jolie donates 100,000 dollars to aid Pakistan

PARIS: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, in Europe to promote her spy thriller "Salt", has handed 100,000 dollars (78,000 euros) to help refugees from Pakistan's floods, UN sources said.

A crowd of 1,000 fans engulfed the 34-year-old actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, when she stepped out of a limousine in Paris on Tuesday evening clad in a short shiny number with plunging neckline for the French premiere of the movie.

A UNHCR source attending the gala screening said she had donated the sum to help relieve Pakistan, where aid has been short and slow in coming.

In the film Jolie plays captivating CIA officer Evelyn Salt, who is accused of being a Russian spy and must prove her innocence while on the run.
