The U.N.refugee agency said Tuesday it would welcome the opening of a third Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, as the number of Syrians crossing the border has swelled to around 600 a day.The new camp will initially house a relatively small number of refugees, but will eventually accommodate up to 130,000 people, Edwards said.The camp, which will receive up to 2,000 refugees each day, has already been equipped with shelters to house 13,000 people and enough bathrooms and other sanitation facilities to service 30,000 people.
