Unregistered Syrian refugees live in limbo

Fleeing from war, many Syrians seeking refuge in Turkey have no documents to prove who they are.

    The fighting in Syria has forced about three million refugees to leave their homes and seek refuge outside the country.

    Turkey is officially hosting at least a third of them. But there are many more who are unregistered, also living throughout the country.
