Refugees in Jordan go to school in shifts

Jordan is overwhelmed by nearly 100,000 Syrian students who are now forced to attend classes in the afternoon.

    Consequences of the war in Syria continue to affect neighbouring Jordan. The Jordanian education ministry says it has 100,000 Syrian students enrolled at its state-run schools, but it can barely cope.

    As Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports, some of the schools are having to run double shifts.
