Syrian refugee crisis in Jordan tests hospitality

Jordan will need more than $3bn (£2bn) in aid this year to support Syrian refugees, according to the government and aid agencies working in the country.

There are currently an estimated 1.3 million displaced Syrians living in Jordan and that is putting a huge strain on local economies.
