Mosul, Iraq - Another Chaldean Catholic priest and three church deacons were gunned down in Mosul, Iraq, on Sunday, June 3rd. Father Ragheed Ganni and three deacons from his parish-- Basman Yousef Daud, Wahid Hanna Isho, Gassan Isam Bidawed-- were slain after celebrating the Eucharistic liturgy on Sunday.
Chaldean Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly referred to the attack as “a crime against God.”
As the young priest and three deacons left the church their car was stopped by group of armed gunmen. Pointing their weapons in the car they slaughtered the four Catholics then rigged the car to explode should anyone attempt to remove the dead bodies. The horrific site remained for several hours until a police bomb-squad defused the devices.
