Injured Syrians seek treatment in Lebanon

Injured rebels are being transported into Lebanon from the beleaguered city of Qusayr.

    Injured Syrian rebels from the city of Qusayr continue to arrive in Lebanon following a deal with Hezbollah.

    Some waited for days to be transported by the International Red Cross to safety across the border.

    Despite the hospital facilities being lacking in some respects, most of the wounded are relieved to be away from the war-torn city.
