Iraqi Christians Leaving

The number of Christians in Iraq has been dropping since the US "freed" Iraq from Saddam Hussein.  The Church siege killed several priests and about 70 other Christians.  Now the UN is reporting that thousands are leaving central Iraq for Kurdish areas which are considered safer.  The UN High Commission for Refugees is also worried because some Iraqi Christians who are trying to get asylum in Europe are being sent back to Iraq to areas that simply aren't safe for them.  One of these countries is Sweden
