A Syrian refugee girl sits in a classroom at a Lebanese public school where only Syrian students attend classes in the afternoon, at Kaitaa village in north Lebanon. More than 1.1 million Syrian refugees are now living in Lebanon. Most of them are either excluded or will abstain from the presidential elections in Syria. Syrian authorities have said that only those who entered Lebanon legally could vote, effectively ruling out tens of thousands of refugees mostly opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who crossed through unofficial border posts for fear of authorities.
