    Christians in Mosul began fleeing Iraq’s second-largest city Friday ahead of a Saturday afternoon deadline issued by Sunni insurgents for them to convert to Islam. If they choose not to convert, they can either pay a tax, leave or be killed. The ultimatum is an apparent change from previous reports that said ISIS would not threaten Christians in Mosul, which was seized last month by rebel fighters as they moved toward the capital.
