About 120,000 Syrian refugees have registered with UNHCR in four neighbouring countries - Iraq (7,490), Jordan (36,323), Lebanon (31,004) and Turkey (43,387) - since the uprising began in Syria. In the past few weeks, the rate of Syrians arriving in Jordan has doubled to 1,200-1,300 per day, stretching a transfer facility overflowing with 6,500 people staying in desert conditions, UNHCR said in a statement. The agency is urgently building a camp with tents at Za'atri in Mafraq. "We are quite literally working overnight to get it ready. We may need to move in thousands of people," a UNHCR spokeswoman has said.
