Syrians accused of stealing Lebanese jobs

Government begins campaign to crack down on Syrian refugees running small businesses in Bekaa Valley after public anger.

    Many of the Syrians who have fled across the border to Lebanon to escape conflict are trying to make a living there.
     
    But that is creating tension, with a recent poll finding that 80 percent of Lebanese believe Syrians are stealing their jobs.
      
    Now, the Lebanese government has started a campaign to crack down on Syrian business owners.
