UNITED NATIONS - Syrians are about to replace Afghans as the world's largest refugee population, fleeing a conflict where barrel bombs leave bodies in pieces and a generation of children are physically and emotionally scarred, top UN officials said on Tuesday.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the UN General Assembly that the world body would do everything to implement a UN Security Council resolution - adopted on Saturday to boost humanitarian aid access - and get help to millions in need.
