Life inside Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp

It was planned as a short-term refuge, but more than 150,000 refugees are now living in the camp in northern Jordan.

    It has been a year since the UN's Zaatari refugee camp was set up to accommodate Syrians escaping the war.

    The camp, near the Jordanian-Syrian border, initially created as a temporary shelter for up to 60,000 people, has become Jordan’s fourth-largest city and the world’s second-largest refugee camp behind Dadaab in eastern Kenya.

    Al Jazeera's Dominic Kane reports.
