IRAQ - REFUGEES: Iraqi Christian refugees continue to arrive in Turkey
After a massacre at a church in Karrada, Baghdad on October 31, and amid a wave of attacks against Christians that followed, thousands of Iraqi Christians have been fleeing the country. Most of the refugees are staying in Syria, Jordan and Turkey in the hope they could then emigrate to Europe or the US. Faced with a new diaspora of Iraqi Christians, the Bishop of Baghdad of the Chaldean catholic church, who was in Turkey this (last) week, made an urgent appeal to the international community to help stop the exodus of Iraq's already dwindling Christians.
