Iraqi Christians seek refuge in Lebanon

Christians have been fleeing Iraq in hordes after the Islamic State group seized a series of towns in the north.

    Thousands of Christians have fled Iraq in recent months trying to escape persecution by the Islamic State group.

    Some of these families have started trickling into Lebanon to seek safety.

    But many are struggling to survive, living off the charity and generosity of others, as the fighting in Iraq shows no sign of letting up.
