A Jordanian border soldier helps newly-arrived Syrian refugees crossing into Ruweishid, Jordan, Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013. They are part of the 1,000 Syrians to cross into Jordan Thursday, using a desert route in the east near the Iraqi border. The Jordanian army said the refugees have occasionally used the route previously, but have been doing so more frequently in the past few months because it is safer being away from Syrian towns closely monitored by forces loyal to President Bashar Assad.(AP Photo/Mohammad Hannon) less
