In the Kurdish city of Erbil in northern Iraq, hundreds of people protested on July 24 over the forced expulsion of Christians from their homes in nearby Mosul by militants from the Islamic State. According to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, “Some demonstrating outside the United Nations offices in Erbil wore shirts with the Arabic letter that stands for ‘Nasara’, the word used for Christians in the Koran.” Credit: Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty
