Mosul Being Cleansed of Christians as Thousands Flee

Ad Feedback

Christian families are among tens of thousands of Iraqis fleeing Mosul after Islamic militants seized control of the city.

The jihadist group called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has a reputation of violent persecution of Christians.

The U.S. military killed the Sunni militant group's No. 2 leader, Abu Qaswarah, in a raid earlier this month.

Thousands of Christians fled to Northern Iraq to escape persecution after the U.S. invasion in 2003.

Mosul is one of the last Iraqi cities where al Qaeda in Iraq has a significant presence and routinely carries out attacks, according to CNN.

Is the cleansing of Iraq's Christians entering its end game? Nina Shea, director of the Center for Religious Freedom, answers this and more on CBN Newswatch, June 11.
