Global refugee crisis: Syria aid 'needed for next ten years'

The number of people displaced by war, conflict or persecution reached a record high of nearly 60 million around the world in 2014, a UN report says.

The document by the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, says the number of people forced to flee their homes rose by 8.3 million from the previous year.

Fadi al-Dairi, co-founder of the UK charity Hand in Hand for Syria, told BBC Breakfast that "for the next 10 years there is no hope" that the situation in Syria will improve.
