‘..Iraqi Churches Now Being Used as Prisons of Torture..’
Iraqi Christians are reportedly being tortured in local churches by Islamic State in northern Iraq.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, a Christian resident from the Islamic State-held city of Mosul, said: “These two churches are being used as prisons and for torture. Three of the Christian prisoners died because they were sick and nobody cared for them.”
The man, known as Abu Aasi, claims that Christian prisoners in the churches are being forced to convert and that Islamic State have been “breaking all the crosses and statues of Mary”.
Whilst the claim could not be independently verified, thousands of Christians have fled Mosul since the city was seized by Islamic State in August 2014.
