Lebanon is an "important building block" to security in the Middle East, the UN Special Coordinator for the country has said.

Sigrid Kaag was in New York this week where she briefed the Security Council.

Lebanon, which has a population of around five million people, is hosting more than one million refugees who have fled the conflict in neighbouring Syria.

Ms Kaag called for continued international support to the country, including to its security sector.

May Yaacoub asked Ms Kaag for an update on the situation in Lebanon, starting with the recent deadly bombings in the north-eastern town of El-Qaa near the border with Syria.
