Iraq's Christian Community Suffering

October 12, 2014

 

When I was in #Iraq we caught up with the country's #Christian community to see what has happened to them since air strikes began against #IS . Sadly their situation is even worse than it was before and there are now no Christians left in the Nineveh Plain, an area they have lived in for centuries. Some are sheltering in schools in #Erbil , like this family, or in IDP camps. While others have fled the country.
It is so bad the Archbishop of Erbil told us he wants to see more military action to protect his flock. Not something you expect to hear from a man of the cloth. Here's our TV piece about Iraq's Christians, reported by Quentin Sommerville, shot by Nico Hameon and produced by me: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-29508822 #blog
