VIDEO: Iraqi Christians flee Mosul

Source: Reuters
 Oct 14 – Iraqi Christians say they are being driven out of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul in what they describe as a systematic plan to ethnically cleanse Christians.

More than a thousand Christian families have fled Mosul in recent days following weeks of violence against minority Christians. It remains unclear who is behind the attacks.

Iraq’s prime minister Nuri al-Maliki has ordered an investigation and he’s vowed to protect Christians living in Mosul, previously regarded as one of Iraq’s most tolerant cities.
