Refugees in Lebanon need "additional assistance"Listen /
Refugees who have fled fighting in Syria and the communities that are hosting them in Lebanon urgently need "additional assistance", according to the top UN envoy to the country.
The number of refugees fleeing from Syria into neighbouring Lebanon surpassed one million in April stretching local resources to what that UN has described as a "breaking point."
Derek Plumbly is the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon.
