Residents of a Palestinian refugee camp Tuesday erected a protest tent at its entrance to complain against aid cuts by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.For months, Palestinians in many of the 12 refugee camps across Lebanon have been protesting the cuts that UNRWA said it was forced to make due to dwindling budgets.Refugees since Jan. 1 have been required to pay 5 percent of referral care costs if they receive treatment from a Palestinian Red Crescent hospital, 15 percent if assistance came from a government hospital, and 20 percent if from a private hospital.
