BEIRUT: Lebanese nationals living or working in war-torn Iraq are well, a source at Lebanon's Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

“There are no Lebanese living in areas of fighting in Iraq,” the source told The Daily Star, adding that the situation was occurring in another areas and evacuation was not yet required.

Iraqi Kurds seized control of the northern oil city of Kirkuk Thursday, while surging Sunni Islamist rebels advanced toward Baghdad, as the central government's army abandoned its posts in a rapid collapse.
