GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations refugee agency is talking to Germany about temporarily resettling up to 5,000 Syrian refugees, UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards said on Tuesday.
Edwards said UNHCR was also working with other European governments to find ways to help the 1.6 million Syrians who have fled the country, a number the United Nations expects to reach 3.45 million by the end of 2013.
