One million Syria refugees registered in Lebanon - UN

The number of refugees who have fled Syria and registered in Lebanon has surpassed the "devastating milestone" of one million, the UN says.

Lebanon now has "the highest per capita concentration of refugees worldwide", said the head of the UN refugee agency.

The vast majority of people fleeing the conflict end up in the tented refugee camps of the Bekaa valley.

But some are now seeking shelter in the Sabra and Shatila camps, on the outskirts of Beirut.

Paul Wood reports.
