The aid workers were “to renew their visas and register the association with Iraqi authorities,” . They were also intending to inspect the charity’s activities in the city. The director of the nonprofit said the men are “experienced staff members who have been working with us for years” and had “perfect knowledge of conflict zones.”

“Christianity in Iraq…is perilously close to extinction. Those of us who remain must be ready to face martyrdom.”
