Britain will take in an unspecified number of migrant children who have been separated from their parents by conflicts in Syria and other countries, the government said Thursday.Prime Minister David Cameron announced in September that 20,000 refugees from camps on Syria's borders would be brought in by 2020 .But Britain has opted out of European Union quotas for taking migrants and dispersing them around the 28-nation bloc.Cases could include children with a direct family link to someone in Britain.Britain has committed more than £1 billion to helping refugees in Syria and the region, meaning it is the second-largest donor to efforts to ease the crisis after the US.
