An #Archbishop from #Kurdish northern #Iraq grappling with the influx of more than 120,000 #Christians fleeing #ISIS is to come to #London to plead their cause. Archbishop Bashar Warda of #Erbil is due to give an address in London’s Houses of #Parliament on Monday, 9th February amid increasing concerns about the future of Christians who escaped from #Mosul and #Nineveh with no more than the #clothes they were wearing.
