Christians on Syria's border wary of future

Syriacs in Turkey fear members of community across frontier could face same fate as Iraqi Christians.

    Syriac people in southeast Turkey have strong ties with relatives and fellow Christians across the border in Syria.

    In the ancient Assyrian city of Midyat, Christians say they fear their community could endure what Christians in Iraq suffered when the country fell into violence and chaos.
