The attack, apparently caused by a car bomb, took place as the faithful left the church in the Sidi Bechr district at around half past midnight on New Year's Day. The witnesses said a burnt-out car was in front of the entrance to the church.AND THIS IN IRAQ:
Many Christians were demonstrating in front of a nearby mosque, the witnesses told AFP.
While it was not immediately known who was responsible for the blast, a group calling itself Al-Qaeda in Iraq had threatened the Egyptian Coptic Christians.
The bombing came almost two months to the day after an October 31 attack by militants on Our Lady of Salvation church in central Baghdad, which left the 44 worshippers, two priests and seven security forces members dead.
WILL OBAMA EVER CONDEMN THESE MUSLIM ATTACKS ON CHRISTIANS!?
Two people were killed at least 16 injured in the latest attacks on Christians in Iraq.
Iraq's interior ministry says 15 bombs were placed around homes in Christian areas of Baghdad. Eleven of the bombs exploded.
The couple who were killed had found a bag at their gate which blew up when they opened it.
Church leaders are at a loss to explain the attacks, saying Iraqi Christians have no power and pose no threat.
Two months ago an attack on a church in Baghdad killed 56 people, including many in the congregation and two priests.
The latest bombings have stoked new fears in a community targeted by Islamic militants.
Many Christians have already fled Baghdad or left the country altogether.
DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH.
THE LEFT IS IN COMPLETE DENIAL ABOUT THE BREADTH AND DEPTH OF WW4 - AND THE FACT THAT IT'S RELIGIOUS IN NATURE.
THEIR DENIAL HURTS OUR EFFORTS TO COUNTER-ATTACK EFFECTIVELY.
THAT'S WHY WE NEED TO ERADICATE THE LKEFT BEFORRE WE CAN ERADICATE ISLAMISM.
LET'S DO BOTH THIS COMING YEAR!
