Crisis in Syria is having impact on Lebanon

The crisis in Syria is having an impact on Lebanon and that is causing concern to the UN Special Coordinator for the country.

Derek Plumbly told the Security Council that Lebanon has been enjoying a level of relative calm and stability.

However, he added, there has been some rocket fire and flyover activity from Israel.

Mr. Plumbly also said that the crisis in Syria is creating a spillover affect with at least 13,000 Syrian crossing the boarder into Lebanon as refugees.

"That's something about which I hear from the whole of the specturm, the political spectrum in Lebanon it is a concern to protect Lebanon from those impacts and to a degree the government has been successful in that."
