Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, who last week compared Syrian refugees to "rabid dogs," met with refugees in Jordan on Saturday and urged the US government to do more to help but did not endorse bringing them to the United States.

Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has faced scrutiny over his foreign policy credentials, visited the Zaatari camp for refugees fleeing Syria's civil war, and said he also spoke with medical personnel, humanitarian workers and government officials.

Journalists were not invited to join Carson, one of the leading contenders for the Republican nomination in the November 2016 presidential election. He arrived in Jordan on Friday.
