Jordan: Syrian refugees not welcome outside camps

Police in Jordan have begun rounding up Syrian refugees, taking them by force to official, UN-funded camps. It's part of a law passed by Jordan when it opened its borders, stating that Syrian refugees are to live within the strict boundaries of their camps. The law is now being enforced for the first time. Some of the hundreds of thousands of Syrians living in Jordan have even reportedly been sent back to their war-torn country.
