The number of Syrians who have fled their conflict-riven homeland has hit one million since fighting broke out three years ago, the UN's refugee agency said Wednesday.

"With a million people in flight, millions more displaced internally, and thousands of people continuing to cross the border every day, Syria is spiralling towards full-scale disaster," UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said in a statement.
