    Christians in Baghdad, Iraq's capital, have buried their family members killed after a wave of attacks targeting the religious minority community. The unrest has forced thousands of Christians to flee from their homes.

    In the most recent incident, two Christians were killed from a series of co-ordinated explosions across Baghdad. It came after gunmen opened fire on worshippers in a cathedral in October, leaving more than 40 of them dead.
