Lebanese authorities impose curfew on Syrians

Growing tension between refugees and locals as authorities impose curfew on Syrian nationals.

    Several municipalities in Lebanon have imposed a curfew on Syrians in their area.

    The move has caused mixed reactions, with some seeing it as a form of racism and others a matter of security.

    Lebanon is now home to approximately one million Syrian refugees fleeing their country’s civil war.
