      Statement from the Mother See on Church Bombings in Iraq

      The Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin learned with sorrow from
      the Armenian
      Diocese of Iraq of the terrorist events of August 1, the
      result of which
      caused loss of life and many to be injured. Five churches
      were damaged,
      among them being an Armenian Catholic church. The Armenian
      Apostolic
      churches and Diocesan headquarters of Iraq were not
      attacked or damaged.

      The Armenian Apostolic Holy Church expresses her sympathies
      to the families
      of the victims and all Iraqi people, and wishes complete
      recovery to the
      wounded and injured. We pray that the centuries of
      friendship and peaceful
      co-existence among Christian and Muslim peoples in the East
      will not be
      endangered by similar condemnable violence; for peace to be
      re-established
      in the region; and that the Iraqi people continue with the
      creation of their
      safe and progressing lives.
