Chaldean nuns remain missing amid Islamist takeover in Iraq

2014-07-08

For eleven days, Christians leaders have waited in vain to hear back from two Chaldean nuns, who disappeared in the ravaged city of Mosul, in northern Iraq. 

Sisters Miskintah and Utoor Joseph are part of the Chaldean Daughters of Mary Order. The pair, along with three other women, had returned to an orphanage they had been forced to evacuate days earlier, after the city fell to ISIS militants. 

Christian leaders in the country, fear these militants kidnapped the women. A week ago, the terrorist group declared an Islamic State spanning large areas in Iraq and Syria. They have aggressively persecuted Christians, and bombed churches and monasteries.

Shortly after their disappearance, Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako appealed to Sunni leaders and tribal sheiks in the region to help secure their release. 

Nearly half a million people have fled Mosul, after the Islamist takeover, including the majority of Christians in the city.
