Video: Building a future for refugee camp children in Lebanon

On 16-17 September, 1982, the Palestinian Sabra and Shatila refugee camps west of Beirut were the scene of one of the most horrific massacres Lebanon has ever seen. Thirty-four-years later, our reporter visits the camps, which now host a third generation of refugee children. He also meets with a group of young friends who were born at the Shatila camp at the height of the civil war. They have opened a school within the camp to help the children living there find their way to a better future.

For some witnesses of the massacre, it is the smell of dead bodies that will remain etched in their memory forever. For others, it is the images of mutilated bodies and piled-up corpses. Our reporter brings us back to the dire scenes witnessed in mid-September 1982 when the world discovered the horrors of the Sabra and Shatila massacre. He also takes a look at what’s become of the camps more than three decades on, and what is being done for the refugee children living there now.
