UN says more than 250,000 have fled Syria

The number of refugees who have fled Syria has reached more than 250,000, the United Nations said Tuesday, calling the humanitarian problems sparked by the conflict "our biggest crisis".

"Latest figures show that more than a quarter of a million Syrian refugees (253,106 people) have now been registered in the surrounding region, or are awaiting registration," UN Refugee agency spokesman Adrian Edwards said.


"The complexity of the crisis is one of the aspects which sets it apart and the speed with which people have fled Syria," he added.


The fact that 100,000 people had fled the country into neighbouring countries in the space of a month made it "an extraordinary acceleration of this crisis", Edwards said.
