Lebanon citizenship laws: Mothers want to pass on nationality

Women married to foreigners are not allowed to pass on citizenship, rights campaigners want the decades-old nationality law to be reformed.

    Lebanese women hope they'll soon gain the right to pass on citizenship to their children, even if they are married to a foreigner.

    But proposed changes to the nationality law exclude women married to Syrians or Palestinians.

    Lebanon is one of two dozen mainly-Arab countries that do not give men and women equal rights when it comes to citizenship.
