The case of a Syrian man who was arrested Tuesday for strangling his 8-month-old son because he was crying reflects the desperate plight of refugees, UNICEF's spokesperson said.According to security sources refugee Hasan Ayesh strangled his son late Monday in his home in Minyara, in the northern province of Akkar, reportedly because the boy wouldn't stop crying. As for gaining access to abusive households, Boustani said that due to widespread dispersion of refugees – about 880,000 registered according to recent figures – across Lebanon it was not logistically feasible to protect every refugee child.
