    Only a handful of Syrians have made it to hospitals in neighbouring Lebanon, after being wounded in the ongoing military campaign in Homs.

    Doctors in the northern city of Tripoli expected many more injured Syrians to escape across the border, but Syrian activists say the Lebanese army is arresting anyone trying to cross, regardless of whether they are injured.

    Sue Turton reports from a clinic in Tripoli that has been set up to treat the wounded.
