A Special Edition on Lebanon

Listen in pop-out player

In this special edition on the fallout of the Syrian conflict in Lebanon, Kevin Connolly meets kebab shop owners from Damascus making a new life in Beirut. In a country that already has a high percentage of refugees, including Iraqis and Palestinians, what impact will the huge influx of Syrians have?

And, Caroline Anning fears for Lebanon's fragile peace. After a few years of calm during which businesses were able to thrive again, will tensions between Sunnis and Shias in Syria spill over into Lebanon, and put an end to both peace and rising prosperity?
