Gun shots scare Angelina, Brad

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were left shaken after shots were fired near their California home. The Hollywood couple’s security team are reportedly on “high alert” after gun shots were fired at two parked vehicles, one of which was a campervan used by the team, outside their estate in Los Feliz, California at around 4 am on November 27. One bodyguard told Life and Style magazine, “I’m doing fine, but I don’t want to talk about this.” While the Fight Club actor’s representative denied the family had been the targets of the attack, one neighbour commented, “You can tell their security guys are on high alert right now.”

Meanwhile, a leftist farmers group in the Philippines have asked the United Nations to send Angelina over to see how many people have been forced out of their homes due to army attacks. Willy Marbella, leader of the The Kilusang Magbubukid Pilipinas (Movement of Farmers in the Philippines), said, “Since June 2005, we have been asking the chair of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, to look into this and send Angelina Jolie to see the real situation of internally displaced people in the country. Hundreds of people are being forced out of their homes and farms every month.”
