Syrian refugees in Lebanon hit by winter storm

The UN is warning that hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees are at risk as the worst winter storm in decades sweeps across the Middle East.

Officials say they are deeply concerned as blizzards and freezing rain have hit the region.

Heavy snow storms have delayed an airlift of aid and in the area most affected by the storm, the Bekaa region, 125,000 refugees are living in freezing conditions in tents.
