Syrian refugees riot over Jordan camp plight

Al-Zaatari is the largest camp for Syrian refugees in the Middle East, with over 140,000 people.

    From Turkey to Lebanon, the situation for hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees is getting worse.

    Inside al-Zaatari camp in Jordan, people have rioted several times over living conditions. The Jordanian authorities have insisted they are in control, but people in the camp are on edge.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports from the camp.
