The United Nations refugee agency is talking to Germany about resettling up to 10,000 Syrian refugees, said a UNHCR spokesman.
Andrew Edwards said the UNHCR was also working with other European governments to find ways to help the 1.6 million Syrians who have fled the country, a number the UN expects to reach 3.45 million by the end of 2013.
Half the population at the Zaatari refugee camp are children. After escaping violence at home they are now growing up on the edge of war.
In my second special report, I see how charities in Zaatari are working with Syrian children to try to numb the painful trauma of war.
Zataari, a Syrian camp for more than 100,000 refugees, is a place so desolate that only the truly desperate would call it home.
