Governments across the world are intensifying efforts to evacuate their citizens trapped by Israel's bombardment of Lebanon.

On Friday, dozens of naval and chartered vessels left ports in Lebanon, bringing foreign nationals to safety in Cyprus and Turkey.

The mass exodus from Lebanon to Cyprus, however, is overwhelming the small island nation, which has asked the European Union to help transfer them home.

The United States, France, Britain, Canada, Germany, Australia and India are among the countries organizing evacuations.

Meanwhile, the Geneva-based International Organization for Migration says tens of thousands of migrants from poor developing countries are stranded in Lebanon.

The I.O.M. says governments that do not have the money to help their nationals in Lebanon, like Sri Lanka, the Philippines, and Ethiopia, are requesting that Lebanon transport them to Syria and Jordan.
