Lebanon and Israel, still technically at war, started unprecedented talks sponsored by the United Nations and the United States on Wednesday to settle a maritime border dispute, a UN source told AFP.

"Yes, they have started," the source said at around 10:30 am (0730 GMT) without disclosing additional details.

The talks, held at a UN peacekeeping force base in the Lebanese border town of Naqura, are a rare official interaction between Lebanon and Israel, which have no diplomatic relations.
