  • Attack against Kirkuk’s St Ephraim Syrian Orthodox Church
    A bomb exploded at around 1.30 am. No one was killed or injured, but the church was heavily damaged. The incident follows others against Kirkuk Christians in early August.

    Kirkuk (AsiaNews) – A bomb exploded last night near the St Ephraim Syrian Orthodox Church in Kirkuk, which is just a few hundreds of metres from the Chaldean cathedral, in central part of the city. The device blew up at 1.30 am and there were no victims. The damages to the church were however huge (pictured).

    Today’s incident is the latest in a string of attacks against Christians and their places of worship. On 2 August, a car bomb exploded in front of the Holy Family Syrian Catholic Church, wounding 15 people. The bomb had been placed inside a car, parked near the building.

    On the same day, another bomb also placed in a car parked near a Presbyterian church was defused before it went off.

  • Did I miss something? Why is "Pres-byt-er" being blanked out? Anyone care to explain?  :confused1:

    No idea, I'm just as confused as you are.  I just cut and pasted.
