Topic: Amnesty says world neglects Syrian refugees' plight, urges more open borders


(Reuters) - Amnesty International criticized on Monday what it said was a "dismal" global response to the plight of Syrian refugees and urged neighboring countries struggling to cope with the influx of refugees to lift "deeply troubling" measures designed to keep them out. The human rights organization said the failure of the international community to adequately fund refugees' humanitarian needs or to support their host countries through settlement policies has left Syria's neighbors unable to cope with a "devastating effect." In a report entitled "Global Refugee Crisis: A conspiracy of Neglect", Amnesty said Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey after having taken in over four million Syrians since the conflict started in 2011 were now closing their borders.
