WIDE ANGLE | Iraqi Exodus | PBS

Duration: 03:51

www.pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/epi...

WIDE ANGLE reports from the front lines of the staggering refugee crisis that is unfolding in the Middle East as Iraqis flee their war-torn country at the rate of up to 50,000 people per month. Our story takes us to the heart of the crisis – to Syria and Jordan, which harbor the vast majority of uprooted Iraqis. WIDE ANGLE explores the displaced Iraqi community – from the middle class suburbs of Damascus where Iraqis have sent housing prices soaring more than 50 percent to the cafés, schools and food distribution sites of Amman.
