Thousands flee refugee camp violence

Thousands of refugees are becoming refugees for a second time.

They have taken advantage of a gap in the fighting to leave the Nahr Al Bared Palestinian refugee camp near Tripoli.

Many are taking refuge in the nearby Bedawi camp.

Humanitarian organisations are warning residents are running out of food and water.
