(Geneva) – More than 700,000 Syrian refugees have registered or are awaiting registration in neighbouring countries as the conflict in their war-torn nation spirals further out of control, the UN refugee agency said. “We ve had a huge push in the last few weeks. The needs are enormous,” UNHCR spokeswoman Sybella Wilkes told, adding that a colleague on the ground had complained that “we cannot get to everyone fast enough.”
She pointed out that the number of Syrians registered as refugees or awaiting processing in the surrounding countries had reached 703,314. Of that number, she said, more than 581,000 were registered, and aid workers were doing their best to scale up the registration process “to clear the backlog.”
