By Krittivas Mukherjee, Indo-Asian News Service
Kolkata, Apr 11 (IANS) A group of nuns from Mother Teresa's order has stayed put in Iraq to help sick children amid the war, but two more sisters enroute to Baghdad are stranded in Jordan. "Four of our sisters in Baghdad are safe and doing fine. We are in touch with them," Missionaries of Charity official Sunita Kumar told IANS. The four sisters -- Dency, Rosalyn, Theresina and M. Joseph -- were among 30 Indians who refused to leave Baghdad when the U.S. launched a war on Iraq March 20.
Response: Great news of the safety of the Indian catholic nuns in Iraq and more going there to help. Can the Goanet keep us informed from Kuwait or Dubai or India if the Muslim equivalents of nuns and priests are going to Iraq to help their (and our) brothers and sisters? Regards GL
