Hundreds of Syrian refugee families in Jordan are being affected by winter storms sweeping across the Middle East region, the UN Refugee Agency says.

The severe weather has caused damage to shelters and further disrupted life in the Za'atari camp in the North of the country.

Many people have been forced to wait out the storms in emergency shelters or stay with neighbours and relatives.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
