WEA RLP: Iraq (Direct Post)

[Edited] - Update: CNN has just reported that the Archbishop has been found dead:

There has been no word from Archbishop Rahho since his abduction and, while the kidnappers have twice raised the ransom price, they refuse to give any proof he is alive. Archbishop Louis Sako of Kirkuk told Aid to the Church in Need that they are deeply worried that Archbishop Rahho is either extremely ill or dead. Further to this, 20 March marks the fifth anniversary of the start of the US-led war on Iraq. Terrorists have vowed that on this anniversary they will 'open a new page in the fighting' and focus on operations that will 'cause the maximum pain and bewilderment to the enemy'. This might be sheer bluster, or it might be a legitimate threat. Please pray that God will protect his remnant Church in Iraq.
