Refugees Flooding Iraqi Kurdistan

Thousands of refugees from Syria are pouring over the border into Iraqi Kurdistan, the UN refugee agency says.

Up to 10,000 crossed at Peshkhabour on Saturday, bringing the total influx since Thursday to 20,000. The UN says the reasons are not fully clear.

The UN agencies, the Kurdish regional government and NGOs are struggling to cope, correspondents say.

Please pray for Syria and the continuing crisis as it threatens to engulf neighboring countries. Also, pray for NGO's and the Kurdish government that is bringing much needed assistance to the Kurdish refugees.
