Keeping you informed

Every Friday we publish our Weekly Media Summary, a selection of news stories about the region in which we work. Currently, our projects are in northern Iraq, Baghdad and Amman. Much of the online news these days is behind paywalls but we will do our best to share content which is free to view.

This week’s media summary includes an article about the discovery of a mass grave near Mosul containing the remains of 40 Christians. There is an article about Prince William’s upcoming trip to the Middle East, including Jordan. There is also an article about the closing of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
