Video report by the Jonathan Head of the BBC which reflects the position of many refugees, including those from Iran and Syria, who feel they receive very little assistance from other countries to support their wishes for democracy:
With no sign of an end to the ongoing violence in Syria, thousands of refugees continue to flee over the Turkish-Syrian border in search of safety.
UN aid chief Valerie Amos visited some of those living in emergency camps on Friday, having visited parts of Syria on Thursday.
She said “limited progress” has been made to get aid access to the worst-hit areas of the country, but that much more needed to be achieved.
