PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - The U.S. Embassy hasn't approved Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton's adoption of a Cambodian baby, which means the Hollywood couple can't take the infant to the United States immediately.
Jolie took custody of the 7 1/2-month-old boy in Africa, where she's shooting her next film. Her husband, Thornton, is in the United States. It's unclear who brought the baby to Jolie.
U.S. Ambassador Kent Wiedemann told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the baby, named Maddox, is traveling on a Cambodian passport and does not have a U.S. visa, 'and thereby would not be permitted into the U.S.'
The U.S. government banned adoption of Cambodian babies by Americans in December following reports that illegal networks were buying infants from destitute mothers and selling them to orphanages for adoption.
