Iraqi government builds massive concrete walls around churches
Catholic World News - December 14, 2010

While the walls and other security measures-- including police presence at church entry points-- make “you feel you are entering a military camp,” Church leaders are grateful for the increased protection, said Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Bashar Warda of Arbil.
