Syria Refugee Numbers Soar as Overwhelming Needs Abound

According to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, the world has not seen an outflow of refugees "at such a frightening rate since the Rwandan genocide almost 20 years ago." UNHCR officers report that 6,000 Syrians a day flee to nearby Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt to escape the horrors of the Mideast nation's civil war. To date, the UNHCR has registered nearly 2 million people who have fled Syria, while an estimated 5 million internally displaced persons remain within Syria's borders.
