Iraqi military personnel stand guard outside a cathedral in Kirkuk, Iraq, during the Christmas Day mass on December 25, 2008. Around 800,000 Christians lived in Iraq at the time of the US-led invasion, but the number has since shrunk by around a third or more as members of the minority community have fled the country, according to Christian leaders.
