No need for an expensive handbag! Angelina Jolie carries a basic backpack as she arrives at LAX following her UN trip to the Congo






She had removed her $250,000 engagement ring for her trip to Rwanda where she was busy doing her official UN duties.

And it appears that Angelina Jolie also did away with her designer handbags for the trip as well.

The actress returned from her trip to the Congo to Los Angeles on Wednesday, and was seen toting a simple black backpack.

Smiling as she headed out of the
terminals at LAX airport, the Oscar-winning star would have looked like
any other traveller if it wasn't for her famous good looks.


The
37-year-old actress travelled comfortably on the trip home wearing a
billowing black maxi dress paired with an oversized blazer.


She
also strutted along in the same black loafers she had been wearing for
several days as well as the same simple pieces of gold jewellery.

With barely any make-up on her flawless complexion, she shielded her eyes with one of her pairs of trusty Aviator sunglasses.

Angelina was in the African country of Rwanda for several days.  

On
Sunday, the actress was seen in a reflective mood as she laid wreaths
at the Gisozi genocide memorial in the Rwandan capital of Kigali.

The star was joined by UK Foreign Secretary William Hague in her capacity as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.

The
ceremony took place close to the 19th anniversary of the country's 1994
genocide in which an estimated 800,000 victims died as a result of
tribal violence between Hutus and Tutsis.


With
her light brown hair loose around her shoulders, the actress wore a
black suit and top, again with minimal make-up teamed a simple gold
necklace for the ceremony.

For her trip, Angelina was not wearing her extravagant $250,000 engagement ring from her fiancé Brad Pitt.

The star was spotted without her bling as she arrived first in Rwanda and also paid a visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Instead The Girl Interrupted star wore a more modest gold band on her wedding finger.

While
there is no news that the couple have in fact already tied the knot, it
appeared that Angelina had merely exchanged the jewellery for her
official UN work duties.

According to USA Today, Angelina was in the African country acting as a representative for the UN's refugee agency.

Hague and the star met with survivors of rape and sexual violence, which is frequent in the country.

Their trip to central Africa was aimed at forcing the Group of Eight world powers to address the issue more seriously.

Hague
said he would be making the issue his priority when he hosts the annual
meeting of G8 foreign ministers next month in London.

'This visit is about hearing
first hand from people who have endured rape and sexual violence during
the conflict in the eastern DRC,' Angelina said.


'We
want to learn the lessons that their experience holds for how the world
can protect thousands of women, men and children at risk of rape in
many other conflict zones.


'And we want to persuade governments around the world to give this issue the attention it deserves.

'Unless
the world acts, we will always be reacting to atrocities, treating
survivors rather than preventing rape in the first place.'


Angelina and Mr Hague are calling on
the G8 to agree that rape and sexual violence constitute breaches of the
Geneva Conventions governing warfare.


They also want a new international protocol on the documentation and investigation of the issue.

'More often than not the
international community looks away, the perpetrators of these brutal
crimes walk free and the cycle of injustice and conflict is repeated. We
have to shatter this culture of impunity,' Hague said.


'It
is time for real, meaningful action by the governments of the world to
say that the use of rape as a weapon of war is unacceptable, to bring
perpetrators to justice and to lift the stigma from survivors.


'This is my personal priority for the meeting of G8 foreign ministers.'

The campaign will also be taken to the UN Security Council in June and the UN General Assembly in September.

Discussions on solutions to the conflict with political leaders are also set to take place.
