This article was amended on Sunday, June 10 2018

In a previous version of this article, UNHCR's Lisa Abou Khaled was reported as saying that UNHCR would comment "soon" on Bassil's freeze on residency permits. This quote was misreported by MTV, according to Abou Khaled. The Daily Star regrets this error.
