The B.C. Catholic profiles an upcoming Vision TV documentary "Persecuted Christians." The documentary focuses on the horrors experienced by Christians in the Middle East:

Martin Himel's documentary "Persecuted Christians" will be shown on VisionTV Wednesday, March 14, at 7 p.m. Pacific Time.

The film contains rare footage of locations where Himel, an award-winning filmmaker and veteran war correspondent, was able to shoot atrocities taking place. These include Our Lady of Deliverance Church in Baghdad, where a bloody attack on Iraqi Christians broke out in 2010.
