Lebanon registers 1 million Syrian refugees

Published on 04 April 2014

The U.N. refugee agency says the number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon has exceeded 1 million, calling it a "devastating milestone" for the tiny Arab country with depleted resources and an explosive sectarian mix of its own. Three years after Syria's conflict started, Lebanon has become the country with the highest per-capita concentration of refugees worldwide, struggling to cope with a massive crisis that has become an unprecedented challenge for aid agencies.
