Syrian refugees: Displaced by war

The Syrian refugee experience in photos, from scenes of joy after arriving to new lands to despair in overwhelmed camps.

At the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, member states adopted the New York Declaration on Refugees, which ultimately gives officials two more years to negotiate their strategies and obligations on the refugee crisis.

By definition, a refugee is someone who cannot go home due to well-founded fear of violence and persecution.

Pressing on the world leaders' agenda is the question of Syrian refugees, who because of the raging civil war in Syria, are desperately seeking asylum.

The following scenes are but a glimpse of their daily struggles and occasional joys.
