Dire conditions for Syrian refugee camp close to Jordan border

Refugees in Rukban camp face difficult choice of picking safety over food as Syrian government puts chokehold on aid.

The United Nations says conditions are dire for the remaining Syrian refugees in Rukban camp near the border with Jordan.

Most have left for Syrian government-controlled areas but the UN says it can’t guarantee the safety of those who want to go to opposition-held areas in the north.
