Lebanon, like many of Syria's neighbors, is groaning under the weight of refugees as that country's civil war continues with no end in sight. In Lebanon, officials recently imposed a curfew on foreign laborers in an effort to restrict Syrian refugees.
There are at least 600,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon. And with no refugee camps, the refugees are spread around the country. That's putting a burden on everything from water and electricity, to jobs and education, and security.
