Syria refugees: Inside a container camp in Tunis

Mahmoud is a Syrian refugee. He used to work as a headmaster in Idlib, but after demonstrating against the regime, he decided to flee with his wife and three children.

It took them 10 days to reach the border. They lived in Turkey for nine months, and are now living at the Kilis camp in Tunis.

Their home is a metal container converted to include a makeshift kitchen and bathroom, as well as living space.

The BBC's World Have Your Say programme asked Mahmoud to give a tour inside.
