LONDON (AFP) - Hollywood star Brad Pitt added his A-list support to his partner Angelina Jolie's efforts to eradicate rape in warzones when he joined her in a flashbulb-popping appearance at a global conference in London on Thursday.

The Hollywood couple - with British Foreign Secretary William Hague standing between them - posed for a bank of cameras as they arrived at the conference venue.

Ms Jolie wore a black tuxedo-style jacket and trousers and Mr Pitt a dark suit and sunglasses.

A government source said Mr Pitt had wanted to show his support to the cause "but I doubt he'll speak. He'll leave it to Angelina: it's her baby".
