Kurdish refugee: 'The world has closed its eyes'

Turkey has seen the biggest single exodus of refugees from Syria as Kurds try to escape north across the Turkish border to get away from Islamic State fighters.

The UN refugee agency says 130,000 have crossed the border in recent days and they have made an appeal for international aid to help with the influx of people.

Hanan, a Kurdish refugee, who fled Kobane spoke to the BBC about his journey to Turkey.
