Horses ferry Syrians to safety

Syrian refugees reach safety in Lebanon after a long ride fleeing violence near the Golan Heights. At least 150 have fled into Lebanon's Shebaa region as tension escalates near Syria's ceasefire line with Israel. Refugees arriving on Thursday (March 21) said their homes are being bombarded. Several towns near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are believed to be overrun by Syrian rebels. They say more towns could be taken, and claim government forces are shelling civilians. Concern in Israel is growing that peace in the sensitive military zone could be threatened. U.N. peacekeepers monitoring the ceasefire line have halted patrols after observers were seized by rebels for a number of days earlier this month.
