Displaced Syrian children celebrate Christmas

In the freezing cold of Lebanon's Bekaa valley, hundreds of displaced young Syrians celebrated Christmas.

    A group of Muslim children are celebrating a more unusual holiday, at a Syrian refugee camp in Lebanon.
     
    For many of the boys and girls, it's the first time they've been taught about Christmas.
     
    But as Al Jazeera's Rula Amin reports, it's part of a wider education strategy.
