AMMAN, Feb 2 : On the doorstep of Syria's conflict, Jordan is pinning hopes on this week's donor conference in London to ease the burden on its debt-riddled economy of hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees.
King Abdullah II, one of dozens of world leaders due to attend Thursday's meeting, has warned his country is at "boiling point".
"Sooner or later, I think, the dam is going to burst," he told the BBC, pointing to strains on employment, infrastructure, education and healthcare.     ?AFP
