Syrian war leaves a lost generation in Turkey

Refugees who fled to neighbouring Turkey struggle to find jobs and support their families, leaving thousands hopeless.

    The Turkish border city of Antakya shelters tens of thousands of Syrian refugees who once believed they would return home soon after their arrival.

    Now Syrians living there say they wonder whether they would ever go back to their home country, even as they struggle to find jobs and feed their families in Turkey.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from Antakya.
