Over Half mln Syrian Refugees in Region: UN

Over Half mln Syrian Refugees in Region: UNThe number of Syrian refugees registered in neighboring countries and North Africa has passed half a million, the UN’s refugee body said, adding that many more have not come forward to seek help. According to a statement by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, they have either registered and are in the process of registering 509,550 Syrians in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and North Africa. And these numbers are currently climbing by more than 3,000 a day.
While all the registered Syrian refugees in Turkey were living in camps, but across the region around 60 percent of refugees were not in camps. Most of them were instead living in rental housing, with host families or in various types of collective centers.
