Protect Christian minorities, archbishop asks Interpol
November 09, 2010
The Vatican’s representative at a meeting of Interpol has called for action to protect Christians from violence in the Islamic world.
Speaking on November 8 at an Interpol meeting in Qatar, Archbishop Carlo Vigano, the secretary-general of the governorate of the Vatican city-state, said that among the threats to human rights worldwide, “the most glaring is that being experience by the Christian communities of the Middle East.”
The archbishop spoke just a week after a massacre at a Catholic church in Baghdad, which he described as “an act of unheard-of ferocity against defenseless people united in prayer."
