German envoy to Lebanon 'dismayed by false accusations' over refugees

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The international community is “dismayed by repeated false accusations” that it is working to settle refugees in Lebanon, Germany’s ambassador in Beirut, Martin Huth, said on Thursday.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil has accused the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR and the international community of preventing Syrian refugees from returning home from Lebanon.
