Angelina Jolie is visiting Ecuador to bring attention to Colombian refugees in honor of World Refugee Day. The violence and fighting that has been going on for decades between the FARC and the Colombian government has caused over a hundred thousand innocent people to flee the country. In addition to the refugees, many people do not know that Colombia is second only to the Darfur region of the Sudan with an estimated one million internally displaced people.

Whatttt? Remember the crazy Spanish guy who brutally attacked a young Ecuadoran girl on the Barcelona subway for no apparent reason? Yeah, well, despite him punching her, grabbing her breast, and kicking her in the face (all while shouting racist comments at her), the guy went free until his trial! A Barcelona court decided Sergi Xavier Martin (the attacker) should keep away from both the victim and the subway system, but for now, he's on the loose, reports Colombian newspaper El Tempo.
