Canada's FM visits Jordan Syrian refugee camp
Canada's foreign minister has said the worsening situation in Syria is "tremendously horrifying" during a trip to Jordan's first refugee tent city, which is near its northern border with Syria.
John Baird, accompanied by his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh, spoke during a Saturday visit to the Zataari desert camp, where more than 3,300 Syrian refugees are housed.
Jordan hosts 150,000 displaced Syrians, more than any other country. Fighting in Syria's largest city Aleppo and other recent clashes is sending more Syrians to neighboring countries.
Baird says Canada will donate $1.5 million to the World Food Program in Jordan and $2 million for medical supplies for doctors inside Syria.
