Italy/Iraq/Syria: Colosseum and cathedrals lit red in solidarity with persecuted Christians

Rome's Colosseum, and Cathedrals in both Syria's Aleppo and Iraq's Mosul were lit up in red on Saturday, to bring attention to Christians persecuted around the world. The Colosseum in Rome, the Saint Paul church in Mosul and the St. Elijah Maronite Cathedral in Aleppo all turned crimson to show solidarity with those Christians killed and persecuted for their faith. The colour was supposed to represent the spilled blood of persecuted Christians. The event at the Colosseum was accompanied with a live-stream of the ceremony at the St. Elijah Maronite Cathedral in Aleppo projected on its exterior and brought attention to the situation of Christians in Iraq, and Syria, among others, such as Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian condemned to death for blasphemy.
