    Lebanon is being criticised for its decision to send back Syrian refugees who arrived after April without proper documentation as another way of pressuring Syrians to return home.

    Human rights groups are accusing Lebanon of putting the lives of refugees in danger. Nearly 3,000 of them have been sent back in the past four months.
