Syrian refugees mark Christmas in camps

Forced to flee from their own homes, hundreds celebrating Christmas in refugee camps in neighbouring Lebanon.

    Christmas celebrations within Syria have been overshadowed by continuing violence due to almost two year long uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

    Mass was performed in the afternoon instead of the normal time of midnight because of security concerns. Christians in Damascus say they are praying for peace and security to return to the country.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall reports from Zahle, in neighbouring Lebanon, where hundreds of Syrians are taking refuge.
