Jordan: Help Us Absorb Syrian Refugees


Jordan called on the international community, Sunday, to help it the 160,000 refugees who have entered from Syria. Jordan's information minister said that more than 2,000 refugees arrive every day.

The United Nations' refugee agency said it has not succeeded in raising the $190 million that were promised Jordan and other countries at the beginning of the year to assist Syrian refugees.
