Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri has warned that his country is close to "breaking point" due to strains of hosting more than one million Syrian refugees, fearing that unrest could escalate due to tensions between refugees and local communities.
Speaking to foreign media on Friday, Hariri said: "Today, if you go around most of the host communities, there is huge tension between the Lebanese and the Syrians ... I fear civil unrest."
Refugees from Syria make up about a quarter of Lebanon's population. They mostly live in informal camps across the country, some, in severe poverty.
