Pope Francis Arrives In Baghdad For "Historic" Trip

• Zero Hedge - Tyler Durden

Pope Francis arrived in Baghdad Friday for a three-day visit to war-torn Iraq. In his first international trip since the pandemic began, Francis hopes to convince the collapsing Christian population to rebuild after decades of war and oppression, according to WaPo. Since the 2003 US-led invasion of the oil-rich country, about one million Christians have fled; 2017 estimates show the population may be around 500k.
