This article was amended on Wednesday, October 29 2014

A previous version of this article erroneously reported donors had pledged $650 million for Lebanon to cope with the Syrian refugee crisis. In fact, Berlin made a pledge of 500 million euros ($637 million) to be split between both Lebanon and Jordan, and to be delivered over the next three years.
