Syrians flee to safety in Jordan

They cross the open desert in a single file, sometimes well over a hundred Syrians in a single group. The darker the night, the safer they are from Assad's border guards. For more than a year, it's been a fluctuating but constant flow. The refugees say they know they're safe when they see the dark outlines of buses waiting for them on the Jordanian side.
