UNHCR: Syrian refugees shot at while fleeing to Jordan
Syrian refugees are being shot at as they flee to neighbouring Jordan and many have to be treated in hospital on arrival, the United Nations said on Friday.

 

In its latest briefing on the Syria crisis, the UN refugee agency also said 250,000 people were living in temporary shelters in the flashpoint city of Homs, without adequate food, clothing or medicine as winter added to the misery of civil war. (Reuters)
