General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim cast doubt Friday on the accuracy of the recent Palestinian census, saying that the number of Palestinians in Lebanon was in reality higher than the reported figure.It reported that 174,422 Palestinians live in the country's 12 camps and "gatherings" – defined as geographical areas hosting at least 15 Palestinian families.During a Friday meeting with members of Lebanon's Press Syndicate, Ibrahim said census fieldworkers were likely unable to reach some sections of refugee camps to conduct their work, due to security concerns. He also noted that General Security had not been involved in the census process.
