A Parliament member in Iraq has called for a Christian region to be established in the north. 

11/29/2010 Iraq (AKI) – A Christian member of parliament in Iraq has has called for a Christian region in the north of the country after a series of violent attacks, including one in which 58 Christians were killed while worshipping in a Baghdad church in late October, and other subsequent attacks, continue to threaten their lives.

Kana’s idea comes after Iraq’s president Jalal Talabani’s appeal to Christians earlier this month that they move to Iraq’s autonomous northern Kurdistan region as a means to escape extremist attacks against them, until the government can assure their security.

Many of Iraq’s approximately 500,000 remaining Christians are living in fear of their lives after the continuing attacks and death threats unless they leave the country.
