The Jerusalem Inter-Church Committee has issued the following statement and asked that it be circulated as widely as possible:
"The Heads of Churches in Jerusalem met today at the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate and expressed their concern at the recent bombing of Christian Churches in Iraq. Whilst assuring the injured, bereaved and communities of their prayers, the heads condemned all violence/damage to places of worship be they churches, synagogues or mosques."
