Minorities living tormented days under sectarian violence

"An official from the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), speaking on condition of anonymity, told IRIN that minorities in Iraq make up four percent of the country's total population. However, they make up about 30 percent of Iraqi refugees, whose total number is thought to be 1.8 million..."

"According to Iraq's last census in 1987 there were 1.4 million Christians in Iraq at that time. But, the Ministry of Migration and Displacement has said that nearly half of that population has fled Iraq since 2003..."

The same thing that happened in Kosovo. I wonder if there is a common denominator........
