Malala urges help for Syria refugees

Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has urged wealthy countries to do more to help desperate Syrian war refugees, calling them "quite stingy".

Malala, who campaigns for education rights for children, spoke during a tour of Jordan's Azraq refugee camp. She was accompanied by 17-year-old camp resident Mezon al-Melihan, a fellow education activist.

Since the 2011 outbreak of the Syria conflict, more than 4 million Syrians have fled the country.
