EU money to help reconstruct refugee camp in Lebanon

Text size Aa Aa

Arab and European leaders have met in Vienna to raise funds for a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon which was destroyed last year during violence between Islamist militants and the Lebanese army.

The EU’s External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner promised 28 million euros to assist in the reconstruction of the Nahr al-Bared camp.

She said she hoped the decision would help both the refugees and their hosts.

The camp in northern Lebanon was home to some 40,000 people before the clashes broke out in Spring last year.
