Europe’s bishops prod UN Security Council on Iraq

Catholic World News - August 19, 2014

In a joint letter to the United Nations Security Council, the president of each European nation’s episcopal conference deplored the persecution of Christians and other religious minorities in northern Iraq.

“Let us hope that the Security Council of the United Nations, whose purpose is to ensure international peace and security and to promote human rights, may be unwavering in its determination to reach this goal,” the bishops wrote. “We ask you, therefore, to act with the necessary urgency for these, and all victims of war and violence, that are suffering and awaiting the solidarity of the world.”
