Remaining Syrian Christians fear chaos

In town of Yacoubiyah, from which many of the community have fled, the main fear is lack of authority on the ground.

    More than a million people have left Syria to escape what is now more than two years of fighting.

    In the Christian village of Yacoubiyah, many say their families have fled to safer places, both inside and outside the country.

    Those who have chosen to stay are confronting new fears close to home, with some abandoned villas now used as bases for opposition brigades.

    Villagers told Al Jazeera their worse fear today is the fact that there is no authority on the ground.
