UN: Syria Refugees Top 2 Million Mark

The surge of Syrian refugees fleeing their homeland has surpassed 2 million, according to the U.N.’s refugee agency. BBC reported that more Syrians are now displaced than any other nationality. Meanwhile, President Obama has won key backing from U.S. lawmakers on his call for a military strike on Syria, a motion that Congress is expected to vote on next week.
