The BBC reports the laments of some Christians who have just moved to Jordanian refugee camps and who say their lives have been destroyed by IS.

About 1,800 Iraqi Christians from the area surrounding Mosul first escaped IS by going to Erbil, but are now temporarily sheltering in Jordan upon the invitation of Jordan’s King Abdullah II and with the assistance of the Catholic humanitarian aid agency, Caritas.

“My daughter was the first to be born in exile here in Jordan,” says Abu Safwan,in a Catholic centre outside Amman.

The majority of them are now impoverished, having fled their homes with just the clothes on their backs and therefore now dependent on the generosity of others.

“We only survived because we escaped from the city early in the morning. Other Christians had their cars, gold, money, even diapers stolen from them by Islamic State militants,” says Abu Suleiman, a man in his 60s from Mosul.
