UN: Lebanon will have 1.5M refugees by year's end
UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Monday that over a million Syrian refugees are registered in Lebanon, and 50,000 new refugees continue to sign up with UN agencies each month.

 

In Geneva earlier, the UN's humanitarian chief in Lebanon, Ross Mountain, told reporters that at this rate, Lebanon will be home to 1.5 million refugees by year's end. That's one third of Lebanon's population of 4.5 million. (AP)
