Angelina Jolie arrived in Nowshera in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday to meet with victims of that country's worst ever floods, and has the brand new pictures of the Oscar winning and humanitarian.

Jolie - a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees - told reporters that she met with mothers who lost their children in the devastating floods.

"I am very moved by them and I hope that I am able to, today and tomorrow, be able to do something to help bring attention to the situation for all of the people in need in Pakistan," Jolie, 35, said after visiting a refugee camp near Jalozai.

The Salt star also said the situation in Pakistan was "extraordinarily complex".

Officials hope Jolie's two-day visit will help generate more donations for the flood-ravaged country. The disaster has left 1700 people dead and another 17 million affected.

Out of respect to the local culture, Jolie wore a traditional black robe and a black headscarf lacked with a thin red stripe during her visit to the camp.
