The UN refugee agency says Thousands of refugees from Syria are pouring over the border into Iraqi Kurdistan.

 

Up to 10,000 crossed at Peshk-habour on Saturday, adding to an earlier influx of 7,000 on Thursday.

 

The UN agencies, the Kurdish regional government and NGOs are struggling to cope.

 

The UN says the reasons are not fully clear, but there has been a sharp rise in clashes between Syrian Kurds and anti-government Islamist militants.
