Families return to Lebanon camp

Click here: BBC – Families return to Lebanon camp

Clutching plastic bags of possessions, the families waited patiently at the camp entrance to be searched before being allowed back to their homes.They are the first of about 400 families granted permission by the Lebanese Army to return to the camp.The army’s siege of Fatah al-Islam members displaced some 40,000 people. About 400 people, mainly militants and soldiers, died in the violence, which started in mid-May and finally came to an end on 2 September. The UN Relief and Works Agency, which is overseeing the staged return of families to the camp, provided transport from the nearby Beddawi camp where the refugees have been staying.
