Lebanon Struggles With Influx Of Syrian Refugees

Originally published on Mon February 18, 2013 6:01 pm

The United Nations now says some 5,000 Syrians are leaving the country every day, headed for any neighboring country that will take them. Up until now, the tiny country of Lebanon has hosted the highest number of Syrian refugees. Lebanon has its own history of problems related to large numbers of refugees, so now the country is forbidding the construction of formal refugee camps.
