'Lost in Lebanon': Scott sisters tackle Syrian refugee crisis
Date created :
Over one million Syrians have fled to Lebanon since the civil war broke out in their homeland six years ago. As refugees, they are increasingly being met with hostility, however. According to a recent report, some are them are even being threatened with eviction. This week, we're joined by film directors Sofia and Georgia Scott. Their documentary “Lost in Lebanon” takes a closer look at four Syrians and their personal battle to rebuild their lives in Lebanon.
This week we also take a look at Egypt which is reeling after being subject to its worst terror attack in modern history. Militants armed with guns and explosives killed over 300 people when they attacked a crowded mosque in the restive Sinai province last Friday. According to analysts, the onslaught marks a need for change in the Egyptian government's anti-terrorism approach.
Finally, the Chirac Foundation has awarded its 2017 Prize for Conflict Prevention to the Istanbul-based Hrant Dink Foundation. The foundation was created after the assassination of Turkish-Armenian journalist and activist Hrant Dink in 2007. Dink’s wife picked up the prestigious award on her late husband’s behalf.
