Around 200 people in Beirut marched from Ashrafieh toward the Interior Ministry in Hamra Monday to denounce discrimination in light of the recent spate of attacks and measures against Syrians in the country.Following a wave of suicide attacks on the Lebanese border village of Al-Qaa late last month, security forces have arrested hundreds of unregistered Syrian refugees and many municipalities have imposed curfews on Syrian nationals.Images circulated last week appeared to show policemen abusing and humiliating Syrians residing in the northern Lebanese coastal town of Amchit, further highlighting the degree of discrimination in Lebanon against the refugees.
