The BBC's Middle East editor, Jeremy Bowen, has been assessing four years of conflict in Syria forthe World Tonight. "Even if the guns fell silent tonight - and they're not going to - this country is going to take years and years to recover. Sadly, looking at it, and looking at all the international links, which I think makes it harder to solve what's going on here, I think this war probably will go on in some shape or form for years to come."

David Miliband, President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, has responded to the news that Britain has accepted just 50 refugees from Syria.

No-one pretends that 1,000 or 5,000 is the answer to 3.5 million refugees, but as an act of solidarity with those countries that do have millions of refugees, it is of inestimable value."
