Wadi Khaled, LEBANON

A young boy walks through a room where he now lives with his family. It is just five kilometres from their home, over the border in Syria. They fled the conflict, that claimed the life of one of his brothers, along with approximately 30,000 other people. Protests against the ruling Baathist regime of Bashar al-Assad erupted in March 2011. Although they were initially peaceful, they were violently repressed by the Syrian army and police. In response to being ordered to shoot unarmed civilians, large numbers of men deserted the army and formed the Free Syrian Army. The protest movement has now turned into an armed uprising with clashes between the regular army and the Free Syrian Army. By mid 2012 the conflict was being described by some within the UN as a civil war.
