Correspondents' stories: Kevin Connolly says as much as a quarter of the population of Lebanon is now Syrian - and the cost of hosting so many refugees is soaring; Mark Lowen in Athens on the reaction from Greek men and women to the authorities' campaign against members of the far-right Golden Dawn party; there's been an economic revolution in The Seychelles and Tim Ecott has been finding out how it was achieved; Kirsty Lang talks about the day a six-metre-long snake brought terror to the streets of a small town in Brazil; while Joanna Robertson has been observing the French easing their way into autumn with the help of some particularly exotic cakes.
