Abu Bashir, a Syrian refugee in Mauritania

Syrians have fled across the globe to escape the fighting in their home country.

The UN refugee agency has registered some 300 Syrians in Mauritania – one of the poorest countries in the world.

Mauritania says hundreds more refugees have arrived who have not registered with the UN and are seeking smugglers to take them through the Sahara and on to Europe.
