Christians in Iraq seek refuge in Erbil

Many displaced families who have fled to different cities for safety have had to leave their loved ones behind.

    Many Christian families have fled ISIL seeking refuge in other areas in Iraq.

    Erbil shelters many internally displaced people, including an unfinished mall which houses 400 families.

    Aidah Nouh is not the only mother whose daughter was kidnapped in Iraq. Rights groups say there are increasing reports of families who say ISIL have taken their daughters.
