Lebanon winter killing Syrian refugees

Several Syrian refugees who fled civil war in their country have died in freezing temperatures.

    Snow has fallen regularly in Lebanon over past weeks as a powerful winter storm swept through the Middle East.

    The freezing temperatures have killed several Syrian refugees, who have fled fighting in their country, and forced thousands of others to huddle for warmth in refugee camps.
