Iraq: Islamic Militants Brutally Persecuting Christians
The army of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), also known as IS (Islamic State), has swallowed up swaths of Iraq like a pervading darkness. In just one day, tens of thousands of Christians fled from towns like Qaraqosh and Bartilla, located about 40 kilometres away. Most came to the town of Erbil with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. "They’ve taken everything from the house, from the store, everything," one Christian refugee told CBN News. "They hate Christians especially. We don't know why."
