Syria's sexist insult to Angelina: Star Special Envoy rips UN's 'paralysis' over civil war's four million refugees and boat migrants ... and the Syrian ambassador's response? 'She's beautiful'

Angelina Jolie attacks UN paralysis over Syria's refugee crisis in New York

Angelina Jolie briefed the council as special envoy for the UN on refugee issues on Friday morning at UN headquarters in New York. When asked about Jolie's planned briefing, Syria's U.N. Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari (pictured right) responded: 'She is beautiful'. What he failed to acknowledge was Jolie's blistering attack on the failure of the world's leaders to act on the country's refugee crisis. The 39-year-old mother-of-six, who said she has made 11 visits to Syrian refugees in the region since the crisis began in 2011, called the failure to help some four million driven out of Syria over the conflict as the 'world's lowest point' and blasted world leaders who are 'paralyzed' by disagreement.

Couple's anger after lifetime of paying off their mortgage is wasted after house value collapsed because council scheme to sell neighbouring homes for just £1 has turned street into a 'ghetto'

Liverpool couple's paid off their mortgage to find it's now worth £1

A couple who spent a lifetime paying off their mortgage have said it was a waste of time after a council scheme to sell neighbouring homes for just £1 has turned the street into a 'ghetto'. Linda and George Hunter, who raised their four children in their home in Garrick Street, Wavertree, Liverpool, became mortgage free around 15 years ago. But eight years ago, the street became part of a regeneration scheme and the council bought properties and boarded them up ready for demolition.
