France to rally aid for religious minorities targeted by IS

Aug 14, 11:01 AM (ET)

PARIS (AP) — France is hosting a conference next month to raise money
and rally support for Mideast Christians and other minorities
persecuted by the Islamic State group.

The conference Sept. 8 will focus on humanitarian efforts to support
ethnic and religious groups in Syria and Iraq who have become key
targets of IS extremists, suffering mass executions, sex slavery and
other abuses.

Diplomats from some 60 countries are expected to join the conference,
co-hosted by Jordan, according to a French diplomat who spoke on
condition of anonymity because she wasn’t authorized to be publicly
named. Military solutions aren’t on the table.

France is taking part in U.S.-led airstrikes in Iraq against the
group, and is worried about fallout from extremist violence at home by
French radicals who support IS.
