Syrian refugees 'beaten in Lebanon'

More than one million Syrian refugees have crossed the border into Lebanon to escape the fighting in their own country.

Lebanon's policy has been to allow all Syrians refuge within the country, but the BBC has spoken to one man who says he was mistreated by the Lebanese army.

The organisation Human Rights Watch says it believes a number of people have been beaten up in a room next to a checkpoint.

Rami Ruhayem reports from Arsal along the Syrian border.
