At least six people were killed when dozens of tents at a Syrian refugee camp inLebanon's Bekaa Valley caught fire on Monday, security sources said.
At least 160 of the roughly 300 tents, which housed around 600 people, were burned and several people were missing, the sources said, adding that the cause of the fire was not immediately known.
"The bodies were totally burned and cannot be recognised. Some are children," a source said.
