Western countries including the US and Britain may be asked to accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees because the exodus from the civil war is overwhelming countries in the region, the UN's refugee chief has warned.

With no end to the war in sight, the flight of nearly 2 million people fromSyria over the past two years is showing every sign of becoming a permanent population shift, like the Palestinian crises of 1948 and 1967, with grave implications for countries such as Lebanon and Jordan, UN and other humanitarian aid officials say.

One in six people in Lebanon are now Syrian refugees. The biggest camp in Jordan has become the country's fourth-largest city. In addition to those who have crossed borders, at least four million Syrians are believed to have been displaced within their own country, meaning that more than a quarter of the population has been uprooted.

In an interview with the Guardian, António Guterres, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees, said the situation was already far more than just a humanitarian crisis. If a resolution to the conflict was not found within months, the UN will look to resettle tens of thousands of Syrian refugees in countries better able to afford to host them, including Britain. Germany has already offered to take 5,000, but other offers have been limited, Guterres said.

"Turkey and Jordan have become so overwhelmed. At the same time there are some very worrying consequences on the security point of view, with the infiltration of armed people, that the border has had to be more controlled. This means refugees are still coming, but they have to come in gradually, which means we have a number of people stranded waiting to cross," Guterres said.

 

2.西班牙火车出轨:60人死亡,125人受伤(今日美国)。

Express train from Madrid left rails on curve in Galicia region, toppling passenger cars.

A high-speed train derailed on a curve Wednesday night in northwestern Spain, killing about 60 passengers and injuring more than 125 others, according to Spanish media.

The leader of the Galicia region earlier reported up to 45 dead and 70 hurt.

Officials said initially that the crash, which occurred on the eve of a local Christian festival, appeared to be an accident, not terrorism. In 2004, Islamists blew up trains in Madrid, killing 191 and wounding hundreds.

The express train, carrying 218 people between Madrid and Ferrol, left the tracks at 8:42 p.m. (2:42 p.m. ET) about two miles from the station at Santiago de Compostela, in the Galician region,said the government-owned railway, Renfe. The number of crewmembers was not released.

All 13 carriages derailed, and four overturned, the BBC reported. TV images showed one car torn apart, another on fire and blanket-covered bodies beside the ruined carriages.

"A lot of people were squashed on the bottom. We tried to squeeze out of the bottom of the wagons to get out and we realized the train was burning," passenger Ricardo Montesco told radio station Cadena SER. "I was in the second wagon and there was fire. I saw corpses."

Early Thursday local time, state television broadcaster RTVE reported at least 60 dead and 125 injured, while radio station Cadena SER also put the death toll at 60 and said more than 140 were injured.

The casualty reports came hours after Alberto Nunez Feijoo, president of the Galician region, told radio station Cope that between 40 and 45 people had died, totals she called "provisional," Reuters reported. More than 20 people suffered serious injuries, he said, and rescuers had finished entering the carriages that were destroyed.

Emergency personnel work the scene of a train derailment near Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The train carrying 238 passengers originated in Madrid and was bound for the northwestern town of Ferrol.
