SARAJEVO (AFP) - Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie arrived in Sarajevo on Thursday with British Foreign Secretary William Hague to take part in a conference on sexual violence in war.

Dressed in black, the US actress arrived at the Sarajevo airport in pouring rain and headed to a hotel in downtown Sarajevo.

Jolie and Hague are due to co-host a high-profile summit focused on ending rape as a weapon of war, scheduled for June in London and expected to be the largest ever gathering of its kind, according to the British foreign minister.

Friday's conference on preventing such crimes is organised by Bosnia's defence ministry.
