When Islamic State fighters in 2014 advanced through the northern Iraqi city of Qaraqosh, one family fled that same night after burying their nine-year-old son — a casualty of the fighting. Now they and other Christian families are slowly returning home in time to welcome Pope Francis. VOA's Arash Arabasadi has this story.
