Iraqis flee to Jordan for medical treatment

Aid agencies say 1.2 million people are now displaced in Iraq and warn the humanitarian situation is getting worse.

    More than a million Iraqis have left their homes because of fighting between Sunni rebels and government forces in the country's north and west.

    Many of those fleeing are making the dangerous journey across the conflict zone to Jordan in order to receive medical treatment.

    Al Jazeera's Caroline Malone reports from Amman.
