 |  NCR Today

Last week an international Pax Christi delegation returned from a visit to Iraq. While there representatives of Pax Christi groups from four different nations visited major cities and spoke with citizens and church leaders.

Upon returning from the country the delegation released a statement describing the situation for people in Iraq. Among things mentioned is the fact that there is still "great fear of being kidnapped."

The delegation also calls for the international community to "investigate and prosecute past and present war crimes and severe human rights violations on all sides."
