Syrians forced to build mud homes for shelter

Fighting continues in Syria with two million people fleeing the conflict and another five million internally displaced.

    As fighting continues inside Syria, over two million have fled to neighbouring countries but at least five million have been forced to leave their homes and move elsewhere in the country.

    Lacking money and material to build new homes, many Syrians have to use mud to construct temporary shelters.
