The UN has expressed concern over new Lebanese restrictions on Syrian refugees aimed at slowing the influx of asylum seekers escaping civil war.

The UN wants the government to clarify whether the "most vulnerable refugees" can still gain access to Lebanon.

Travel between the two countries was previously largely unrestricted, but now Syrians will have to obtain a visa.

There are more than a million Syrians in Lebanon, and a senior minister says there is "no more capacity".
