UN says Syria refugees top 2 million mark

The UN refugee agency says the number of refugees fleeing Syria's violence has surpassed the 2 million mark - another tragic sign of a civil war that shows no sign of letting up.


Antonio Guterres, the head of the Office for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, says Syria is hemorrhaging an average of almost 5,000 citizens a day across its borders, many of them with little more than the clothes they are wearing. (AP)
