Iraq: 2 more Christians murdered in Mosul
Catholic World News - December 15, 2011
The murder of two Christians in Mosul, Iraq on December 14 has raised new fears among the members of the country’s religious minority as Christmas approaches.
Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Amel Shamon Nona of Mosul said that the reasons for the killings are not yet known. And Archbishop Giorgio Lingua, the apostolic nuncio in Iraq, added: “We must be careful not to link each episode of violence to religious hatred.” Nonetheless the prelates agreed that “the faithful are afraid.”
