UN: Urgent need for aid in Syria as conflict continues


The United Nations has said at least 2.5m people in Syria are in urgent need of aid as the conflict in the country continues.

Meanwhile Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates have urged their citizens in Lebanon to leave immediately because of fears that the conflict in Syria is spilling across the border.

The countries called on their citizens to take immediate action after a string of kidnappings of Sunni Muslims by a powerful Shia clan.
