    ZAATARI REFUGEE CAMP, Jordan: The United Nations refugee agency on Sunday (Monday in Manila) rebuked donors for not doing enough to help millions of Syrian refugees and the countries hosting them, saying the crisis demanded “massive support.” Syria’s civil war has generated the worst refugee crisis since the Rwandan genocide of the mid-1990s, with half the population having fled their homes, including nearly three million refugees mainly sheltering in neighboring countries. “This enormous impact is not being fully recognized by the international community,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said at a meeting of senior officials from Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey.
