Elderly nuns attacked, killed in their home in Iraq

.- Two octogenarian Chaldean Catholic religious sisters are being mourned after being attacked in their home in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk.

Kirkuk Police 1st. Lt. Marewan Salih, told the AP that the two women were stabbed multiple times by intruders who raided their home Monday night near Kirkuk's Cathedral of the Virgin in Kirkuk. They lived alone and there was no sign of a robbery, Salih said.

Sister Margaret Naoum, 79, was stabbed seven times as she stood in the garden just outside the sisters' home. The attackers then found Sister Fawzeiyah Naoum, 85, lying on the sofa inside, recovering from eye surgery last week. She was stabbed three times.
