Syrian Christians Fleeing as Islamists Take Over

Ad Feedback

Islamic rebels have been taking over Christian villages in Syria and that leaves the Christians facing some tough choices.

Recently a Muslim group captured the Christian village of Yacoubiyeh.

Many residents fled, leaving behind empty homes, damaged churches and relics of their faith.

Some say they won't return until they see how the Muslim rebel commander treats minorities.

The commander says he will treat everyone fairly, but like many rebel leaders he makes his decisions according to harsh Islamic law.

There are reports of Muslim rebels murdering Christians and kidnapping others for ransom.

Christians make up about 10 percent of Syria's 23 million people.
