The United States will take in more refugees worldwide in the next two years, US Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday, including 10,000 Syrian asylum-seekers in 2016.
"We will now go up to 85,000 with at least 10,000 over the next year in Syria specifically. And in the next fiscal year we will target 100,000," he said.
In the fiscal year ending September 2015, the world's biggest economy took in 70,000 refugees.
