GENEVA – The U.N. refugee agency says more than three years of civil war in Syria has forced three million people to flee their homeland, and the fighting is only intensifying. UNHCR reports the flight from Syria has created the world’s largest population of refugees under that U.N. agency’s care.
A spokesman for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees could not contain his grief on Wednesday after appearing on Al Jazeera Arabic to discuss the shelling of a UN-run school earlier in the day. With the cameras rolling, UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness breaks down into tears after discussing the attack.
