A series of attacks on Iraq's Christian community in July were deliberately coordinated, but the government is not paying sufficient attention to them and they have received scant media attention, says the World Student Christian Federation, reports Ecumenical News International.
"In a carefully calculated terrorist attack on Sunday, July 12th, seven churches suffered bombardment by improvised explosive devices, bombs, and cars loaded with explosives," the WSCF said in a statement.
"The perpetrators planned these attacks to take place while the faithful celebrated the Mass to maximise the pain they could inflict; eight people died and more than 32 people were injured."
