Syrian refugees struggle in Lebanon

Adverse conditions in neighbouring countries lead some to consider a return to embattled homes.

    The government's violent crackdown on protesters in Syria has forced many civilians to seek refuge in neighbouring countries.

    According to the UN, there are thousands of Syrian refugees living in Lebanon.

    The rapid influx of migrants has led to often poor conditions and some Syrian families are even debating a return to their embattled homeland.
