The number of Syrians who have fled their war-torn country has now topped the 1 million mark, CBN News reports. The figure is based on reports from United Nations field offices in neighboring countries that are giving shelter to those who have escaped; meanwhile, thousands continue to cross the border every day. The U.N. also estimates that more than 70,000 people have been killed in the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's regime. "With a million people in flight, millions more displaced internally, and thousands of people continuing to cross the border every day, Syria is spiraling towards full-scale disaster," said Antonio Guterres, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.
