Fighters 'entering Syria from Lebanon'

Armed groups, including al-Qaeda, have allegedly sent fighters across Lebanon's northern border into crisis-torn Syria.

    The Syrian government of President Bashar Al-Assad has accused foreign fighters, including members of al-Qaeda, of smuggling weapons into the country. 

    Even a government minister has said that members of armed groups including al-Qaeda have crossed the border into Syria illegally.

    But Omar Bakri, a hardline cleric who Syria claims is the leader of al-Qaeda in Lebanon, said the group was not operating in the country.
