The SRSG concerned at the targeting of Christian minorities

Baghdad, 13 July 2009 – The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG) Ad Melkert expressed his concern at the continued targeting of the Christian minority in Iraq, following yesterday\'s orchestrated bombings that hit several churches in Baghdad and Mosul, killing at least four people, and wounding dozens more, including children.

 

“This campaign is aimed at terrorizing vulnerable groups and preventing the peaceful coexistence of different religious groups in what is one of the world\'s cradles of religious and ethnic diversity”, the SRSG said.  He called on all parties, including the Government of Iraq, to redouble their efforts to protect minorities in the country, and thereby preserve Iraq’s cultural, ethnic and religious diversity.
