I USA, som legat i krig mot terrorism under dryga 10 år nu, gjorde ett uttalande angående den senaste tidens mord på kristna i bland annat Irak, Egypten och Nigeria.
WASHINGTON (AFP)– The United States said Tuesday it is “deeply concerned” about the rise in attacks against Christians in parts of the Middle East and Africa.
“We are certainly aware of a recent string of attacks against Christians from Iraq to Egypt to Nigeria,” State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said. “We are deeply concerned about what seems to be an increasing trend.”
Crowley, speaking to reporters, said the US State Department condemns all violence based on religion or ethnicity and includes such attacks in its annual human rights report.
But he added: “I’d be very wary at this point about… making any sweeping statements about whether what’s happened in Iraq has a bearing on what’s happening in other countries such as Egypt or Nigeria.
“These are all being investigated,” he said.
