Catholic University to Open in Erbil

By John Lee.

The Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Erbil, Bashar Warda, has reportedly said he plans to open a Catholic university in Erbil in October.

Speaking in Australia, he said university "will embrace our Christian and Yazidi young men and women who were forcefully displaced from their areas and homes in the Plain of Nienveh in Mosul.

"The university will also open its doors wide for Muslims who would learn side by side with Christians and Yazedis with an aim to shape a new and promising future for Iraq and the region."
