Over 2 million refugees forced out of Syria
September 4 , 2013
More than two million people from Syria have gone into neighboring countries. There are about 5,000 refugees every day that look to flee this long conflict, which has already killed over 100,000 people.
The U.N.'s high commissioner said "Syria has become the tragedy of this century- a disgraceful humanitarian calamity with suffering and displacement unparalleled in recent history."
The situation in the region has worsened over the past couple of months and over one million people from Syria have now registered as refugees since the beginning of this year.
Hollywood star Angelina Jolie said world leaders are complacent over the situation in the region and some of the neighboring countries of Syria "could be brought to the point of collapse."
Over 97 percent of the refugees are being hosted by surrounding countries such as Egypt, Turkey and Iraq.
