syriaTwo million Syrians have now fled their country’s brutal and escalating civil war, according to the U.N. Half of the refugees are children, the majority of whom have left in the last 12 months.

Another 4.25 million are displaced inside Syria, making it No. 1 in the world for forcibly displaced citizens. Read more from the United Nations.
