APTOPIX Mideast Lebanon Syria Refugees

A Syrian refugee family waves to relatives after boarding a bus to Beirut International Airport for a flight to Germany where they have been accepted for temporary resettlement, at the International Organization for Migration office in Beirut, Lebanon, Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013. The dozens of Syrians heading to Germany on Thursday were the second batch of the 4,000 refugees that Germany has accepted to receive on two-year visas while Syria remains mired in a two-year civil war that has killed over 100,000 people, displaced 5 million within their own country, and prompted another 2 million people to flee the country as refugees.
