BEIRUT - NOW's correspondent confirmed that American actress and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie spent her night at a hotel in the Beqaa city of Zahle before setting off a new tour visiting Syrian refugees in the Beqaa.
Tight security measures were taken around the Cristal Grand Hotel Kadri, where the actress was staying, and the road leading to it was closed.
Jolie left the hotel at 7:30 am and the first camp she visited was the Fayda tent settlement near Zahle.
