Al-Jazeera Video: Syrian refugees report kidnappings in Lebanon

"Syrians fleeing to Lebanon have reported that armed gangs identifying themselves as members of Hezbollah have set up checkpoints and conducted occasional abductions along roads near the border.

A Lebanese member of parliament says the cases were isolated and that Hezbollah has promised to get to the bottom of the incidents. But Lebanon has rebuked US calls for refugees - including unarmed opposition fighters - to be allowed free movement.

Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from northern Lebanon."
