Syrians stream into Iraq’s Kurdistan Region  16 Aug 2013
Thousands of Syrians stream across a bridge over the Tigris River, entering Iraq on Thursday at a point where movement is normally tightly controlled by both countries. UNHCR’s Field Officer, Galiya Gubaeva, was on the ground with her camera. “There were lots of smiles when people arrived. Many had waited for days in temperatures reaching 40 degrees and so there was a sense of relief,” says Gubaeva.
