Syrian refugees escape to Lebanon's Arsal

Thousands of Syrians have crossed the border into neighbouring Lebanon as violence in their home country continues.

    Thousands of refugees have been escaping the fighting in Syria, and many of them have been trying to go to Arsal, across the border in Lebanon.

    It is a hazardous trip and it is not just civilians who are making the journey.
