- Story Text: United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley paid a visit to refugee camps in Turkey on Wednesday (May 24).
Her visit was part of a two-day trip aimed at finding out how Syrian refugees were coping with their conditions at shelters.
It was the first overseas trip by Haley, a member of President Donald Trump's cabinet, and follows an effort by Trump to temporarily ban refugees from entering the United States and to cut funding to the United Nations and its agencies.
A crackdown by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on pro-democracy protesters in 2011 led to civil war and Islamic State militants used the chaos to seize territory in Syria and Iraq. Half of Syria's 22 million people have been uprooted and more than 400,000 killed.
