2,000 Syrian Refugees Try to Cross into Lebanon
MSNBC – Up to 2,000 refugees fleeing violence in Syria are crossing the border into northern Lebanon, a spokesman for the United Nations refugee agency told Reuters on Sunday.
“Between one and two thousand (Syrians) are in the process of coming from Syria to Lebanon,” the UNHCR’s deputy representative in Lebanon Jean Paul Cavalieri told Reuters.
“Numbers will become clear in the coming hours. This is what we are hearing from our teams on the ground and local authorities.”
