Wounded Syrians flee to Jordan for treatment

Many families from Homs receive treatment in Jordan after incurring severe burns in shelling by Assad's forces.

    The people in Syria's Homs have fled to neighbouring Jordan to escape months of shelling by government forces.

    But many of them, including children, have borne the brunt of violence.

    The members of the Jasem Qaddour family suffered severe burns when their house was shelled.

    They are now receiving medical attention in the neighbouring country.
