Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, in London to promote her new film Maleficent, used the red carpet event Thursday to renew her plea for the safe return of more than 200 Nigerian school girls kidnapped by Islamist rebels. The 38-year-old actress, who serves as a UN special envoy for refugees, said, The important thing is to understand that this happens because these men think they can get away with this. We have to start bringing them to justice and we have to start making it an absolute crime that puts fear in these men so that they think twice about this kind of action.
