ABSTRACT
Lebanon's other hostages are the lesser known 30,000 Palestinians trapped in embattled refugee camps in Burj al Barajneh. Syrian-backed Amal fighters have besieged the camp for months, and at least 750 refugees have died. Another 20,000 Palestinians remain trapped in two other camps. Amal leaders have vowed not to lift the siege until the PLO relinquishes its new positions.
