The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has spoken out against, what he called, atrocious pressure on Christians across North Africa and the Middle East. Archbishop Welby, who is the leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion, described the Islamic State group as deeply evil. But he said military action alone was not the answer. He was speaking during a visit to Egypt to the BBC's Lyse Doucet. "The Archbishop said every trip he makes to this region reinforces his fear that Christian communities, who've existed here for two thousand years, were now at risk of dying. Last year, he backed the air campaign against Islamic State in Iraq, but emphasised military action alone was not the answer. He thought as providing breathing space for governance in this region to deal with this violence. But he said political and religious leaders had to do whatever they could to confront these threats."
