Syrian refugees suffer in squalid camps
The number of Syrian refugees registered in neighbouring countries has nearly doubled since the beginning of September to more than 440,000, the UN refugee agency said on Friday. Many of those displaced by the government's bombardments of cities and towns have also fled to a squalid camp in the Syrian village of Atmeh near the Turkish border. Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Atmeh, where he met refugees suffering from a severe lack of basic needs.
