State Department religious freedom report criticizes Iraq, other US allies

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice released the annual State Department Report on International Religious Freedom Friday, criticizing what it considered to be sharp decreases in religious freedom and an increase in religious strife in several nations, including Iraq. The report found that Iraqis' ability to freely practice the religion of their choice is severely hampered by rising violence, mostly between Shia and Sunni Muslims but also directed against practitioners of less conservative Muslim faiths and non-Muslim religions.
