Hollywood superstar, and special envoy of UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Angelina Jolie on Wednesday (Feb 6) paid rich tribute to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing wreaths at his portrait in front of Bangabandhu Memorial at Dhanmondi 32 in Dhaka. 

The actress visited the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in the city to pay homage to Bangabandhu in the afternoon, local media reports said. She also signed the visitor’s book there.

Radwan Mujib Siddiq, grandson of Bangabandhu, accompanied the actress when she arrived and visited the memorial museum premises.

The special envoy earlier spent two days in Cox’s Bazar to see the plights of over a million of minority Muslim Rohingyas who fled their home to evade a brutal military crackdown.
