Iraqi Christians face sombre Christmas

More than half of 300,000 Christians have been forced from their homes since ISIL took over regions of the country.

The Christian population in Iraq is dwindling. More than half of the country’s 300,000 Christians have been forced from their homes since the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group took over regions of their country.

The refugees are doing their best to celebrate Christmas, but many fear the New Year will be far worse for them.
