Patriarch Gregorius Laham says three Catholics were shot dead and its Christian
inhabitants were forced to flee from the village of Maaloula near the Syrian
capital after it was seized by Al Qaida-affiliated rebels on Saturday. Clashes
between Syrian government troops and the rebels have been raging for over a week
in and around Maaloula, an historic and predominantly Christian village that is
home to two of the oldest surviving monasteries in Syria. Patriarch Gregorius
who is the spiritual leader of the Greek Melkite Catholic Church spoke to Susy
Hodges from his residence in Damascus.
