Afghanistan

The Struggle of Iraq's Christian Assyrians (Persecution)
Iraq
February 2005
The men in the room begin to chant in Arabic saying Allah is the only god and Mohammed is his only prophet and that their actions are in their name, and hence not a sin. The video cuts to a close-up of Raymond's torso. A knife flashes past the screen and pierces his throat. But it is dull and his head is sawed rather than cut off. He is hung upside down to empty the body of blood, much like in the Muslim ritual slaughter of animals.

Sometimes they come up to my sister's children and ask them to get in the car, but thanks to God they always refuse."
