She may not be planning that rumored under the radar wedding, but Angelina Jolie has embarked on another secret journey.

The actress and humanitarian made a two-day trip to Libya on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

"I have come to Libya for a variety of reasons, to see a country in transition at every level," Jolie, 36, said in a statement. "I will be meeting with officials from all sides but above all, listening to the local people in the street. I am here to express solidarity with them."





The actress, who is an ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR planned to meet with representatives from several organizations delivering assistance to Libyans in Misrata and Tripoli.

"It is the work of rebuilding and recovery that will determine Libya's future," she said.

Jolie and Brad Pitt have also donated $340,000 to the Somali aid group Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid to help it expand its services.
