Iraqi Christians targeted by another bombing in Mosul
Catholic World News - May 03, 2010
A car bomb exploded outside the University of Mosul, Iraq, killing one person-- the Christian owner of a nearby shop-- and wounding 100. The bomb was evidently intended to kill students traveling to the school, which has long been a focus of contempt for Islamic militants. The explosion renews the fears of Christians in the city, who have been the targets of a bloody campaign of violence and intimidation.
