Wartime rape victims in Bosnia say they will complain to the U.N. refugee agency about its goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie who has not yet clarified rumors surrounding her movie that have infuriated the women.

Wartime rape victims were outraged when they heard rumors that Jolie's directorial debut was about a victim in a rape camp falling in love with her rapist. Jolie's producer denied the rumors.

Bakira Hasecic, the head of the association Women Victims of War, says she will send a letter to the UNHCR, according to an interview published in daily newspaper Dnevni Avaz on Monday.

Jolie had promised a meeting with the women in November and invited them to shooting in Budapest but Hasecic said Jolie should come to Bosnia and meet the women there.
