The Last Exodus of Iraq’s Chaldean Christians » ANDERS BIRGER

Ryah Achram Abbit is 20 years old and seven months pregnant with her second child. She fled Mosul one and a half month ago after ISIL had taken the city. As they reached the Isil checkpoint on the outskirts of the city, they were stopped by armed jihadis who took everything, they had. After Ryah’s earrings were pulled off her ears they were told to leave the city.
