Struggling to cope with Syria exodus

The number of Syrians fleeing the country's conflict has reached one million, with neighbouring countries struggling to cope - according to the UN refugee agency.

The BBC's Yolande Knell visited the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan and said that there were fears that the country could be overwhelmed by the sheer number of people crossing the border.

Meanwhile, the BBC's Carine Torbey has been to the UN refugee centre in Tripoli, Lebanon, where she said there was growing anxiety about the situation.
