People are doing their Christmas shopping at an art exhibit hosted by UN peacekeepers in Lebanon.

The arts, crafts and homemade bread were made by children with special needs and displayed at the Mosan Centre which organizes capacity building and training activities.

It has been an annual tradition for the Austrian battalion of UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to hold these events since 2011.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
