Embattled Syrians cross into Lebanon

    The conflict in Syria is forcing many families to leave the country in search of safety.

    Families who live along the relatively porous Lebanese-Syrian border have fled from their homes, while others injured in the fighting have been receiving medical attention.

    Activists say the Syrian army opened fire in an attempt to prevent people from leaving the country.
