  • Angelina Jolie is in Pakistan, raising awareness about the floods that have devastated the country, but she also spoke about the Florida church which plans to mark the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks by burning the Koran.

“I have hardly the words that somebody would do that to somebody’s religious book.” Angelina also wondered why Pakistan — a largely Muslim country — has not received as much financial aid as it needs. “There’s lots of speculation about why this one has not gotten the attention it deserves,” she said. “Even all of the wonderful coverage … is not getting the response that usually it’s able to get.” [NYDN, This Is London]
