Four Christians Killed in Two Days in Iraq

ASSIST News Service reports that four Iraqi Christians were recently killed in Baghdad and Kirkuk. According to Christian human rights organization International Christian Concern (ICC), the perpetrators are as yet unknown, but Islamic fundamentalists, criminal gangs and other armed groups have been behind attacks against Christians in Iraq in the past. “The killing of four innocent people within the last two days has put a renewed fear in our hearts. What is important is to keep these continuous atrocities in the media and on the policy makers’ radars. What we need is a more safe and secure Iraq for all Iraqi’s, especially for the Christians who have faced ethno-religious cleansing,” said Julian Taimoorazy, president of Iraqi Christian Relief Council, in an interview with ICC.
