Iraqi Christians 'should emigrate' says archbishop


An archbishop of the Syrian Orthodox Church in London has called on fellow Christians to quit Iraq, following an attack on a church in Baghdad.

At least 52 people died as security forces stormed the Catholic church to free dozens of hostages, taken by armed men.

Archbishop Athanasios Dawood, who is based in the UK, said Christians had been without protection since the US-led invasion in 2003.
