On the day that Russia and China blocked a UN resolution on Syria for the third time, scores of pro and anti Assad demonstrators crowded outside the Syrian Embassy in Jordan.
With pro-regime music blaring from speakers a top the walls of a diplomatic building which has now become a fortress decorated with tanks and armed police. Outside the atmosphere was tense but under control. Each camp eager to tell me their stories, both accusing the other side of being paid for their presence. What was striking however, was not the peddling of propaganda, but the innocence of children, no older than 10, praising or decrying the Syrian regime, too young to understand the politics behind the conflict that has forced them out of their homes and across the border of another Kingdom.
Jordan is currently hosting approximately 140,000 displaced Syrians.
