Article summary: 

This report focuses on the situation of Christians in the major cities of Iraq, who are fleeing to the relative safety of Kurdistan, according to the report.

It cites a Reuters report as saying that a latest incident, in which an elderly man and his wife were murdered, was part of a spate of killings of Christians in Baghdad and other Iraqi provinces in recent weeks.

The perpetrators of these atrocities have promised to commit more murders of Christians, to the point where one group has described Christians as "legitimate targets for killing."

In addition, Christians finding refuge in Kurdistan are finding life difficult because of the high cost of living, the report says.
