Mosul, 1 Dec. (AKI) – A Christian shopkeeper has been killed in the northern Iraq city of Mosul amid a wave of violence against the religious minority, according to Christian Iraqi website Ankawa.

Fady Walid Jibrai was at work in a grocery shop on Tuesday when a group of armed men opened fire on him. It was the time in a week that a Christian had been the target of a fatal attack.

Two Christian brothers were killed last week in an industrial neighbourhood of city 400 kilometres northwest of Baghdad.

Many of Iraq’s approximately 500,000 remaining Christians are living in fear of their lives after the continuing attacks and death threats unless they leave the country.

Terrorist attacks against Christians have caused those living in Mosul to consider leaving the city in Iraq’s north, according to Emil Shamoun Noona, the Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Mosul.
