Europe can expect millions more refugees to flood in from Syria as the war between Bashar al-Assad and rebel groups has turned the country into a ‘living hell’, a UN official has warned.

But with the situation in Syria deteriorating, far more are likely to come, warned Peter Salama, head of the UN children’s agency’s Middle East and North Africa division.
