Kiev/ Ukraine ib Arabic/ Prayers in Syria as fears grow for 200 Christians held captive by ISIL.  

As fears grow for an estimated 200 Assyrian Christians still in the hands of ISIL after mass abductions in northeast Syria last week, worshippers near Damascus have been praying for their safe release.

Their mass on Sunday at the Ibrahim al-Khalil church in Jaraman came as activists reported that 19 captives had been freed – but only after handing over cash in the form of a tax on non-Muslims.
