GENEVA  - Fighting in Syria's Hama governorate displaced an estimated 100,000 people between Aug. 28 and Sept. 5, the United Nations said in on Wednesday, citing the Syrian Arab Red Crescent and the governor of the province.

Many people had fled from fighting in northern rural Hama and the northwestern countryside of Hama towards Hama city and neighboring villages. There were originally about 4,500 families in the town of Halfaya, and 1,700 fled but 2,800 remain trapped by the fighting, the UN report said.
