Pope Francis has begun his trip to Iraq, becoming the first pontiff to visit.
The head of the Roman Catholic Church says he is going as a “pilgrim of peace”.
The number of Christians in Iraq has dropped in recent years, partly due to persecution from al-Qaeda and ISIL (ISIS).
They hope that their struggle to survive will get a boost from Francis's historic visit.
Al Jazeera's Simona Foltyn reports from Baghdad, Iraq.
