Hundreds have died in Lebanon since Israel began its military operation against Hezbollah targets last week.

Israeli airstrikes targeting Hezbollah strongholds have flattened whole neighborhoods, and bombings of power facilities, roads, bridges and Beirut's international airport have had a huge impact on daily life in Lebanon.

Freelance photojournalist Stephanie Sinclair joins Alex Chadwick to talk about her photos that capture the scene at hospitals and funerals around Beirut, and what she's seen of the damage and destruction.
