Lebanon's Labour Ministry has begun a crackdown on undocumented foreign labour in the country.
The government says the measures are designed to protect Lebanese workers.
But there are concerns the move has earmarked the 1.5 million Syrians in the country, where fewer than 2,000 have legal work permits, according to Lebanese officials.
