'Steady' influx of Syrian refugees to Jordan: UN
The UN refugee agency UNHRC said Friday there was a steady flow of Syrians entering Jordan to flee violence back home, adding it had registered 35,000 of them so far who have come to the kingdom.
"The numbers of Syrian refugees coming to Jordan are fairly steady. We have received around 2,500 people who arrived in the past four days," UNHCR representative in Jordan, Andrew Harper, told AFP.
"The number of UNHCR-registered Syrian refugees in Jordan has reached 35,000 so far. It is a very small proportion of the total number of Syrians who are in the country."
Jordan is hosting more than 140,000 Syrians and is building several refugee camps for them.
