In Iraq, the majority of the population is Muslim. But other religious minorities have lived in the same territory for over 2,000 years. This is the case for the Mandaeans, Shabaks, Yezidis, and Christians.
Christians have peopled Iraq since the start of Christianity, but their presence in this land is now under threat. Faced with violence, many of them have left the country. Those who have chosen to stay risk their lives every day.
In the minibus of the “Fraternité en Irak” charity, the director Véronique Bréchot travels the roads of the north of the country from Kirkouk to Qaraqosh in search of persecuted minorities.
