Lebanese border town faces influx of Syrians

Aid agencies in Arsal scramble to help families fleeing the latest bout of violence across the border.

    Scores of Syrians fleeing fighting in the town of Yabroud have crossed the Lebanese border, and are heading for the town of Arsal.

    But with refugee numbers growing and insecurity in the border region, aid agencies are struggling to help Syrians struggling to survive the bitterly cold nights.
