A local television channel has launched an initiative in solidarity with the Christians in Mosul, as anchor and talk show host, Dima Sadeq, began her broadcast sporting a T-shirt with the letter "N" in Arabic, which has become a mark of solidarity with the minority group.Pictures from Mosul, which has fallen under the Islamic State's rule, showed Christians' houses painted with the letter "N," the first letter of the word "Nasrani," used to describe Christians.The radical Sunni group gave Christians in Mosul the choice to either, convert to Islam, pay a religious tax or face death, forcing thousands of people to immigrate.
