Worshipers Targeted at Christmas Services in Baghdad


#1

I think this was predicted by persons in Christians in Iraq.

At least 26 people were killed and 38 others wounded on Wednesday when a car bomb exploded in a parking lot near St. John’s Roman Catholic Church in a southern neighborhood of Baghdad, according to police and medical officials.

The bomb detonated at the end of Christmas prayers as worshipers were leaving the church in Dora, the officials said.

A few minutes before the church bombing, and barely half a mile away, a series of three other explosions in a market in an Assyrian Christian neighborhood left 11 people dead and 22 wounded.

Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God rest in peace.
Amen.
