Carloads of Syrians Stream Into Lebanon
Syrian refugees arriving in Lebanon by the car load.
They're fleeing what they say is an ever worsening situation back home.
[Unidentified Syrian Refugee]:
"The situation after the incident where the officers were killed was such that there was no more bread, no more water or electricity, even in the heart of Damascus. People started seeing shelling which they didn't believe was happening before in other provinces, so they were seeing helicopters in Damascus and listening to their sounds at night."
She says violence in the Syrian capital signaled that no part of the country would remain untouched by the fighting.
It prompted many to jump in their cars and make the two-hour trip from Damascus to the border.
The UN estimates that as many as 30,000 refugees have crossed into Lebanon in the last week alone.
