Internally displaced children stand on snow near tents at a makeshift camp in Azaz, Syria. Families fleeing air strikes and advancing troops in Syria's Idlib province are sleeping rough in streets and olive groves, and burning toxic bundles of rubbish to stay warm in the biting winter weather, aid workers say. Picture taken February 13.
