Christians Fleeing Iraq Area Once Considered Safe

Ad Feedback

Increased violence in northern Iraq is pushing Christians out of that part of the country.

The Kurdish north was considered a safe area for Christians fleeing from violent persecution in the central and southern regions. But bombings in recent months are causing panic and many are fleeing the country. 

Al qaeda has claimed responsibility for several of those attacks. Some Christians have been told by local police that they "should not be in Iraq because it is Muslim territory."

The Christian charity Open Doors International is urging people around the world to pray for Christians in Iraq.

They say that if the persecution continues, there may be no Christians left in Iraq by 2020.

Christian World News: We take you to Iraq, where Christian churches are under fire. In the 10 years since the U.S. invasion, hundreds of thousands of Christians have left the country.
