Text size Aa Aa

A vigil has been held in London’s Trafalgar Square ahead of the third anniversary on Saturday of the start of the Syrian civil war.

The charity Save The Children says youngsters are the forgotten victims, with thousands killed. It says over 5 million children are in urgent need of assistance.

And with more people fleeing the war, the United Nations has warned that Syrians are about to replace Afghans as the world’s largest refugee
population.
