Syria refugees hold elections in Turkish camp

Hopes that exercise will expose refugees to challenges they may face when they return to Syria.

    Syrian refugees living at the Kilis camp in Turkey are holding an election.

    People are choosing a council that will run the camp along with Turkish officials, with women entering the political fray for the first time.

    Although the elections are largely symbolic, it is hoped they will expose the refugees to challenges they may face when they return to Syria.
