A string of bombings targeting Baghdad’s Christian community killed at least four people and wounded 19 others Wednesday, officials said, less than two weeks after a bloody siege at a Baghdad church left scores dead.
Police said at least 11 roadside bombs detonated within an hour of each other in three predominantly Christian areas of central Baghdad early Wednesday. Four of the blasts hit houses belonging to Christians, and two mortar rounds also struck Christian enclaves of the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Dora in south Baghdad.
I wonder what sort of response from the Iraqi military and police this is getting compared to, say, a string of attacks on mosques or police recruiting stations? Murdoc would like to think these coordinated attacks on Christians would get the same treatment, but he wouldn’t be surprised to find out differently.
There are about 1.5 million Christians living in Iraq.
