The United Nations has officially put the death toll from Syria's two-and-a-half year civil war at more than 100,000 victims, but the millions of Syrians left behind, many of whom have been displaced by the violence, are facing an increasingly dire situation of their own.
At least two million Syrians have fled the country since the war began, with most of them stranded in squalid refugee camps across the border of neighboring countries like Jordan and Turkey. Millions more have been driven from their homes as entire towns have been wiped from the Earth and citizens try to find the few places left in the country where they can be safe from bombs and guns. The Guardian has devoted a full day of stories just to this refugee problem and how it has likely altered Syria (and its neighbors) forever.
More than 140,000 refugees have piled into the Zataari camp in Jordan in the last year — enough to make it that country's fourth-largest city — even though the camp was only built to hold 60,000. This aerial shot of the camp taken last week shows the scope of the problem, even though it represents only about one-fifth of the total refugees living in Jordan right now.
