Young priests killed in Iraq

Violence against Catholics flares up in Iraq
Two young priests were among dozens killed at a Syrian Catholic cathedral in Baghdad during an evening Mass on Sunday, October 31.

Parishioners and priests were held hostage by a militant group who were demanding that prisoners who are linked to al-Qaida be released from detention in Iraq and Egypt.
