Iraq's Qaida says Christians "Legitimate Targets"

BAGHDAD, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Al-Qaida militant group in Iraq Wednesday said that Christians and their organizations have become "legitimate targets" after a two-day deadline expired for Egypt's Coptic church to free some women allegedly held due to converting to Islam.

The self-styled Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), the al-Qaida front in Iraq, said in a statement posted on an Islamic website that it "declares all Christian centers, organizations and institutions, leaders and followers, are legitimate targets for Mujahdeen (holy Muslim warriors) wherever they can reach them."

"The killing sword will not be lifted from the necks of the ( Vatican leaders) and their followers until they declare their innocence from what the Egyptian Church is doing," the ISI said in its statement.

The statement said that Qaida's threat came after the church of Egypt failed to release or clarify the status of women said to be converted to Islam and have been held captive in monasteries.
