UN says cannot help war-hit Syrians without more money

The United Nations warned on Monday that it will not be able to help millions of war-hit Syrians without more money and appealed for donations at an aid conference this week in Kuwait to meet its $1.5 billion target. It has raised just 3 percent of that so far.


Some 4 million Syrians need food, shelter and other aid inside the country and nearly 700,000 more have fled to neighboring countries since the 22-month-old conflict began, UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos told reporters in Beirut. (Reuters)
