  • Displaced Iraqis running out of cash, and prices are rising

    Iraq's refugee crisis in Syria is entering a new, dire phase. For the first few years of the war, many of the estimated 1.4 million refugees eked out a living from savings and remittance payments from families still living in Iraq. But savings are rapidly drying up.

    Forbidden to work in Syria, the refugees find that money coming from Iraq is all but gone, now that family members there have lost jobs and sold off their valuables.
