UK is denying refuge to Christians fleeing Isil, say church leaders
Church leaders have accused David Cameron of "turning his back" on Christians facing genocide in Syria and Iraq by failing to offer them refuge in the UK.
Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, led criticism aimed at the Government for failing to provide a safe haven to Christians trying to flee the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
He will sign a petition that is being launched on Monday calling on the Government to "welcome Christian refugees and give them priority as asylum seekers".
