Pope Francis to visit Iraq’s minority Christian community

Pope Francis’ four-day, six-city tour of Iraq will be limited to a handful of small gatherings and visits to sites linked to the Bible. The vast majority of Iraq’s Christians will watch the tour — the first by a pontiff to Iraq — on television. A complete curfew is being imposed for the duration of the trip. These stringent measures have been taken to mitigate the risks of the visit, which is considered Pope Francis’ most dangerous trip so far, both because of a nationwide spike in coronavirus cases and because of an uptick in violence in the war-ravaged country.
