The number of Syrian refugees in the Middle East will likely nearly double over the next year as more and more Syrians flee their war-ravaged country, the UN warned on Monday.

According to a fresh UN estimate, some 4.1 million Syrians will be living as refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt by the end of 2014, up from an estimated 2.4 million today.
