Snow storm causes misery for Syrian refugees

Many families living in flimsy shelters are ineligible for help because they are not registered with the UN.

    A heavy snow storm is causing misery for thousands of Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
     
    Many families, most living in flimsy shelters, are ineligible for help because they are not registered with the United Nations.
     
    The storm is expected to last through the weekend.
