Iraqi Archbishop: ‘Gang Rapes, Torture and Murder of Christians’ Are Ongoing

An Iraqi Catholic archbishop says that Christians in Iraq “are afraid of another wave of persecution that will be the end of Christians,” despite news of the “defeat” of the Islamic State.

“The daily practice of robberies, gang rapes, torture and murder of Christians is ongoing,” said Basra Archbishop Habib Al Nawfali in a recent interview with Catholic News service. “Therefore, they are pondering what will be next.”
