Cardinal visits refugees in Iraq

Cardinal Vincent Nichols visited the capital of Kurdistan on a two-day visit to Iraq from 12-13 April 2015. Erbil sits alongside two major conflicts - war in Syria between rebel groups and President Al-Assad's regime, and the advance of ISIS militia into Iraq. The Cardinal, with one of his Westminster auxiliaries, Bishop Nicholas Hudson, visited refugees in six facilities around the city and celebrated Mass with the local Chaldean community.
