ArDO: Yes we want Lebanon to be the Switzerland of the East and Beirut the Paris of the East

ArDO reports from Iraq


In the restive northern city of Mosul, a church and a convent were bombed, with both targets severely damaged but without any casualties, religious leaders said.

One of the attacks hit the St Theresa Convent of Dominican nuns in the western Jadida (New Mosul) district, according to Father Yousef Thomas Mirkis, chief representative of the Dominican order in Iraq.

"These attacks are aimed at forcing Christians to leave the country," he told AFP, noting that the bomb had been placed inside the convent grounds and caused damage to its building.

Another bomb struck the Church of St. Ephrem in the same Mosul district, causing major damage to the Chaldean church building, said Patriarchal Vicar George Basman.
