Syrian refugees flood into Jordan's first official camp

Civilians are leaving Syria's largest city, Aleppo, after anti-government rebels there came under sustained attack from President Bashar al-Assad's forces.

Foreign Minister Nasir Judah told the BBC's Lyse Doucet that Jordan welcomed the big numbers of Syrian refugees, but the country's limited resources were feeling the strain.
