The Belmont Club: Go Tell It on the Mountain

A sad post found on the Belmont Club:

The entire lay leadership team of the main Anglican church in Iraq is presumed to have been killed after they were attacked while returning from a conference in Jordan. The team of five Iraqi-born Anglicans including the lay pastor and his deputy, should have returned two weeks ago from the conference. ...

The loss brings to 12 the number of Iraqis that Canon White has lost in his reconciliation work in Iraq, although these are the first connected to the church. He did not think they were targeted because they were Anglicans. "The fact is that attacks on people on that road happen all the time, particularly on people who appear to be richer or middle class."
