THREATENED: Angelina Jolie's work to protect an area of Cambodian land is reportedly being threatened by an influx of settlers. The land, located in northwest Cambodia, is forestland that a conservation group funded by the actress hopes to protect, and once belonged to the Khmer Rogue regime, which ruled the country in the 1970s. Jolie has donated $1.5 million to the conservation efforts, but some 1,000 people have recently settled in the area, cutting down the forest to grow crops. "The new settlers will attract more people to the area," a spokesman for the conservation group tells the Associated Press. "Any expansion of new settlement will affect our conservation work."
