Archbishop Kidnapped in Iraq Found Dead


www.examiner.com

BAGHDAD (Map, News) - The body of a Chaldean Catholic archbishop kidnapped in Iraq last month was found just outside the northern city of Mosul, officials said Thursday.

Archbishop Paulos Faraj Rahho was seized by gunmen in Mosul soon after he left Mass on Feb. 29. Three of his companions were killed, the latest in what church members called a series of attacks against Iraq's small Christian community.

Monsignor Shlemon Warduni, the auxiliary bishop of Baghdad, said the church in Mosul had received a phone call from the kidnappers on Wednesday telling them the archbishop was dead. They also told church officials where they could find the body.

The article goes on to say that Iraqi militants have targeted the small Christian community because they are perceived as being sympathetic to the U.S.

I don't want this thread to turn into a Muslim bashing. It seems, though, that religion plays an important role in the Iraqi civil war.

There are many casualties in the Iraq war, on all sides.

It's interesting, isn't it, how this particular piece of news doesn't attract attention, whereas the other one, about the 20-year old who was also killed in Iraq, does...?

And then people complain about other people being sheepish...


Thank you for posting it.
