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 troubling news about an Iraqi court which is seeking to prosecute four people on charges of atheism. There is also an article about the World Food Programme increasing its support for refugees in Jordan.
