leave a comment »

The places of religious worship are one of the main targets of terrorist attacks in Iraq. According to the Iraqi Human Rights’ Ministery, it has by now dramatic proportions.

From 2003 to 2007, 350 have been attacked: 313 mosques (of which, 219 shia and 94 sunni mosques) and 41 Christian hurches.

The official statistics also include the victims of different professions all linked to culture: between 2005 and 2007, 224 university teachers, 197 journalists, 95 lawyers and 27 judges have been murdered.

All the society is menaced, according to these official statistics, although the numbers differ of other studies.

It would have been truly good to know the proportion of people killed because of their religion…
