TURKEY, Istanbul : A Syrian refugee man gestures as he begs in the street with a baby lying on his lap in Istanbul on June 19, 2014. Syria’s army on June 15 said it had recaptured the strategic town of Kasab and the only border crossing with Turkey in Latakia province, after it fell to rebels almost three months ago. Nearly half of Syria’s population has fled their homes since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad’s rule erupted in March 2011. More than three million have found refuge abroad,but around six million more are displaced inside Syria, with many living in terrible conditions in camps along the borders. AFP PHOTO/BULENT KILIC
