Terrorists attacked Christians In Baghdad
In a series of explosions that occurred in Christian neighborhoods in Baghdad, killing three people, another 24 were injured, reports BBC News.
For attacks terrorists used two mortar shells and ten pipe bombs. Explosives were placed near the buildings where Christians live, and later brought into action.
According to representatives of local police, the attacks were a continuation of the capture by militants Catholic churches during the assault that killed dozens of worshipers.
As the newspaper notes, the ongoing violence against Iraqi Christians has led to many of them to flee the country. Due to emigration once millions of Iraq’s Christian population has fallen by half, and the flow of refugees for religious reasons only growing.
Christian communities exist on the territory of modern Iraq for two thousand years.
