Christians Flee Iraqi Town after Worker's Murder

Ad Feedback

Several Christian families in the Iraq town of Kirkuk are packing their bags Wednesday, preparing to leave the country.
Their exodus follows the discovery this week of the body of Christian health worker Imad Elia. Elia, 45, was shot repeatedly in the chest and torso. 

Thus far, at least 10 families have left Kirkuk out of fear that kidnap-for-ransom gangs are targeting Christians there.

Senior International Correspondent Gary Lane, who has traveled to Iraq, joined CBN News Channel's Midday program to share more on the situation in Kirkuk. Click play to watch the interview.
