Syria Refugee Crisis Worst Since Rwandan Genocide, Says U.N.

During a rare public briefing in New York, U.N. officials reported that at least 92,901 people have been killed in Syria — including more than 6,500 youths — between March 2011 and April 2013. The subsequent refugee outflow has heightened to 6,000 people per day, mirroring an unheard of rate since the Rwandan genocide two decades ago, officials claimed.
