Many Syrian refugees are now living in Jordan, both in refugee camps and in towns and cities. The situation is challenging for the refugees themselves, and also for their host country.
Over one million Syrian refugees are currently believed to be living in the small kingdom of Jordan. They fled their country's raging war that started seven years ago. In the past few months, some have returned to Syria. But for many that's not an option.
Jordan have made it two out of two, beating Syria to clinch a place in the round of 16. Syria responded by firing their German coach. Thailand got past Bahrain to keep alive their chances of reaching the knockout phase.
Hanan and Huda Othman have made it. Despite dealing with prejudice in Syria for their different religions, the couple is now enjoying the freedom and independence it always dreamed of — in northern Germany.
