    The violence in Syria has forced around 80,000 civilians to flee to neighbouring Jordan. Most are farmers who used to cross the border to earn extra income from seasonal agricultural work.

    Now, the community of Syrian bedouin have set up a tent village in Jordan's Karak province with plans to stay with their families until the bloodshed ends.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El Shamayleh reports from Ghor, in Karak.
