On April 26, in the city of Kirkuk, Iraq, three Christians were killed and two others were wounded. A mother and her daughter-in-law had their throats slit. A gunman also attacked another family, shooting the father and three sons. One boy died instantly and the others were hurt.
This is just another episode in a long line of attacks against churches, Christian businesses, and believers in Iraq. Many people are pressured in many different ways to stop witnessing and convert back to Islam.
Prayer is needed for the families that lost loved ones in these attacks and for healing for those who were injured.
