Getting worried about some friends
I have been reading some very troubling news reports today about an upsurge of violence in Mosul, in northern Iraq. Some recent headlines:
USA Today: Fighting explodes in Mosul
The Times of London: Rebels spread chaos to Mosul
Reuters: Clashes erupt in Mosul
There are three young bloggers from Mosul (Najma, hnk, and Maas), who are also regular readers of this blog, and who I have not seen or heard from in more than two days. Frankly, I'm getting a bit worried about them, and I pray to God they are okay, and that things calm down again in Mosul soon.
