Syria refugees must vacate Lebanese schools

Syrians who sought refuge in schools in Lebanon's Bekaa valley told to leave before pupils return.

    Syrians who sought refuge in schools in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley are being told they have to leave before the start of the school year next week.

    Lebanese officials have been handing out tents, but refugees have had to find somewhere to erect them.

    With more than 200,000 refugees now registered in countries on Syria's borders, it is further evidence of a growing humanitarian crisis.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from the Bekaa Valley.
