(ANS) – Over 120 people were killed in a massive suicide attack and clashes across Iraq on Wednesday, July 28, amid reports that local Christians are persecuted by Islamic radicals who accuse them of collaborating with American occupiers. It was not clear if there were Christians among the roughly 70 people who died when a suicide car bomb exploded near a police station in the Iraqi town of Baquba , where people stood in line to apply for jobs in the security forces. However the U.S. based Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) said “growing persecution” has many Iraqi Christians looking for a way to leave the country. Many Christians are known to have died in violence and specific attacks. Wednesday’s suicide attack created a scene of devastation. Television footage showed dead bodies scattered across the ground and injured people dazed and confused. Rescue services were struggling to cope and outgunned police men watched in agony as people cried for attention between twisted metal and debris.
