EL CAJON, Calif. - Hundreds of local Iraqi Christians took part in a peace walk in El Cajon on Tuesday to end the genocide in Iraq.
The walk was led by local Chaldean leader Mark Arabo, an advocate for fellow Iraqi Christians being persecuted by Islamic State militants. It went from St. Michael Chaldean Church to the El Cajon Centennial Plaza.
Many of the people participating in the walk still have family in Iraq. They say they walked to show support and also for solidarity.
