A once empty Syrian border transit point has rapidly become home to more than 11,000 people from Iraq.

They've been forced to flee their homes following an upsurge of terrorist violence across the region.

Now named the Badjet Kandela camp, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is turning the site into a temporary home for the displaced people.

Pat Duffy reports.
