Child labor in Lebanon was already a deep-seated problem before an influx of Syrian refugees made it worse. Now, there are fears the practice could become even more widespread - and with families dependent on the income children generate, there are no easy solutions. NGOs are working on the ground to re-integrate children into the education system, and new guidelines have been issued by the U.N., to help youngsters reclaim their childhoods. John Owens reports from Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.
