Palestinian refugees in Lebanon hit hard by UN funding crisis

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians refugees live in Lebanon. They're descendants of the Palestinians displaced during the Arab-Israeli wars of the mid-20th century. Many live in abject poverty, relying on support from the UN agency UNRWA and a helping hand from international donors. But the United States, a key donor, has now entirely cut off its funding to UNRWA, forcing the refugees deeper into a spiral of hardship. Our correspondent reports.
