Syrian refugees still reluctant to return home from Lebanon

According to the UN refugee agency, nearly one million Syrian refugees currently live in Lebanon. With the IS group defeated, the border with Syria has recently reopened, but many Syrian refugees are staying put. FRANCE 24’s Julie Dungelhoeff reports from the town of Qaa in northern Lebanon, which is home to 30,000 Syrians. Their ongoing presence is proving divisive for the inhabitants of this small Christian town.
