Angelina Jolie is best known for her work on the movie screen, but she's also made a lasting mark with her long history of humanitarian work. Appointed Special Envoy by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2012, Jolie has spent the last 17 years carrying out almost 60 field missions. Her most recent one was on June 16, when she stopped in Mosul, Iraq, to bring attention to the desperate conditions in the war-torn city. Here's a look at her trip to Mosul and some of her previous missions to conflict zones around the world.
