Keeping you informed

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

In this week’s media summary there is an article about the rise of extremist ideology in Iraq and its impact on Christians. There is also a report about a new, US-funded counterterrorism centre in Jordan.
