IRAQ: Misna, “An abominable crime, a shameful act that the conscience of any person refutes”, said the Patriarch of the Chaldean Church, Emmanuel Delly III about the murder of a Chaldean priest and three other people in Mosul last night. The bishops, in synod at Almeltemen, “confide in the Lord such that in Iraq, security and stability might prevail”.

The Patriarch and members of the Chaldean Church said that yesterday’s murder “reiterates what we have denounced in previous communiquès concerning the persecution of Christians in Iraq - (something far less common under Saddam Hussein " and we ask Iraqi and international authorities to consider all necessary measures to end these criminal acts and prevent them from occurring again”.

According to a witness account posted on, father Ragheed Ganni and three of his deacons (Basman Yousef Daud, Wahid Hanna Isho, Gassan Isam Bidawed) had just left the church of the Holy Spirit at the end of the Sunday evening mass, when their car was stopped by armed men who let the wife of one the deacons out and then opened fire against the four occupants of the car.

The bodies of the victims were laying on the road as it is feared that the aggressors placed explosive devices that set to explode should anyone try to recover the corpses. Later in the night, after the devices were disconnected, security forces were able to recover the bodies of the four victims. The funeral was held today at 15.00 (local time) celebrated by the bishop of Mosul, monsignor Faraj Rahh [AB]
