Mideast Jordan Refugee Life Photo Essay

In this Thursday April 17, 2014 photo, a Syrian woman hands her baby to a man in a wheelchair at Zaatari refugee camp, near the Syrian border in Jordan. Life in this sprawling camp, Zaatari, is only getting harder for 130,000 residents, most of them fleeing fighting in south Syria. Security has become hard to control. Earlier this month, an angry mob of refugees attacked Jordanian police, throwing rocks, prompting police to fire tear gas, and there were reports of live ammunition in fighting that left one refugee dead and 28 police wounded. The angry protests were sparked after police detained a family of refugees and a driver who tried to smuggle them out of the camp.(AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)
