The UN refugee agency has says that Western countries have promised to increase the number of Syrian refugees they will accept for resettlement to up to 100,000 over the next few months.

The UNHCR made the announcement at a meeting of member states in Geneva.

The 100,000 figure is still well short of what the UN and aid agencies wanted.

Most refugees - around three-million - are in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. Up until now, only about 62,000 have been allowed into Western countries.
