Syrian Refugees in Jordan Riot, May Face Deportation

Tension are flaring along Jordan's border with Syria.

Jordanian officials are fed up with the influx of Syrian refugees, which currently number more than 180,000.

The Refugees are bristling at the conditions they face in makeshift United Nations camps.

About 200 went on a rampage at the Za'atri camp, protesting poor services and conditions.

Dale Gavlak visited the camp and sent this report.
