Anthony Shadid on the status of Christians in the Middle East

Need to Know’s recent report from Baghdad revealed an uncertain future ahead for the Iraqi Christian community that has been targeted by Muslim extremists in the country. But how are Christians being treated throughout the Middle East? For that, we turn to Anthony Shadid. Mr. Shadid has reported from the region for 15 years and is now a correspondent for the New York Times. He has won the Pulitzer Prize twice for his newspaper reporting and has completed his third book, “House of Stone,” which will be released in March. It’s about his family’s ancestral home in Lebanon. Anthony Shadid joins host Ray Suarez from Boston.
