US increases aid to Syrian refugees

Refugees and migrants arrive on Eftalou beach, west of the port of Mytilene, on the Greek island of Lesbos after crossing the Aegean sea from Turkey on September 21, 2015The United States will add another $419 million dollars to help civilians endangered by the fighting in Syria, officials said Monday, after criticism Washington is not doing enough to help refugees. Washington has been by far the single biggest humanitarian donor to Syrians and the additional funds will bring the sum it has spent since the start of the conflict in early 2011 to $4.5 billion. President Barack Obama has promised that 10,000 will be admitted over the next fiscal year, but the main US priority is helping refugees in camps in the region while seeking a long-term settlement to the conflict.
