    The number of Syrians registered or awaiting registration as refugees in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Egypt has surpassed 540,000, about half of them children, the United Nations said. The number could exceed one million later this year, the agency said.

      of refugees from the Iraq attack and the subsequent sectarian civil war? Like Riverbend Girl, who I've heard nothing about since her last post soon after arriving in Syria.
