Jordan has sharply increased the amount of money it says it requires from the international community to cope with the influx of refugees from Syria.

In a joint appeal with the UN's refugee agency, Jordan said it now needs 700 million dollas to deal with the crisis. Only a few days earlier, it asked for 400 million dollars.

The request comes as fighting continues to rage across Syria, increasing the number of fleeing civilians.

Meanwhile, Algerian Lakhdar Brahimi has taken up his post of UN peace envoy.
