Chaldeans in US protest attacks on Iraqi Christians

DETROIT (AP) — Hundreds of protesters have marched in Detroit and Chicago to demand security for Iraqi Christians after Islamic militants invaded a Baghdad church on Oct. 31, leaving 58 people dead.
In Detroit, protesters chanted “Stop the genocide!” and held pictures of two priests who were killed after Chaldean Catholic worshippers were taken hostage during Mass.
A rally organizer said the church attack was a “massacre” that was meant to trigger “a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Iraq’s indigenous Christians.”
Protesters held signs with messages such as “66 Churches Bombed in Iraq Since ’03” and “US Gov’t You Have Made the World Miss Saddam Shame on You.”
