Violence against Iraqi Christians following imam’s sermon
CWN - December 05, 2011
Following an imam’s sermon--described as “vitriolic” by AsiaNews--Islamist protestors destroyed dozens of liquor stores and other property owned by Christians in Zakho, a city of 200,000 in northern Iraq. The violence then spread to surrounding towns.
“The extremist crowd, chanted jihad, or holy war, and anti-Christian slogans,” a local source told AsiaNews.
