Jordan opened the camp with 2,000 tents to accommodate refugees near the border. Diplomats say around 115,000 Syrians have fled their country, mostly to Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, to escape the 17-month rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad. The Jordanian authorities say around 130,000 Syrians have come to Jordan since the uprising began, but diplomats say not all of them are classified as refugees.

Thousands have fled Aleppo, driven out by heavy fighting. NBC's Ayman Mohyeldin reports from one refugee camp along the Turkey Syria border, where some frightened civilians have ended up.
