Syrian refugees face new challenges as they return home

The UN says around 1.4 million people have returned to their homes in Syria last year.

    The United Nations says hundreds of people who fled fighting in the town of Suran - in Syria's Hama province - are slowly rebuilding their lives.

    They left in 2016, when armed groups took over the town, seeking refuge in Lebanon, Turkey or other towns in Syria.

    But as they gradually made their way back, they are facing new challenges.
