The city of Qaraqosh in Iraq is home to one of the country's last large Christian populations. Around 40,000 Christians live here. The city has a total of 12 Christian churches. Even though more than 800,000 of the 1.4 million Christians living in Iraq have fled the country over the past 20 years, Qaraqosh has remained a bastion of stability.
