NEW DELHI, MARCH 21, 2003 ( The Missionaries of Charity will stay in Baghdad so as not to abandon the city's orphaned children.

Sister Densy, local superior of the congregation, made this clear to Catholic agency UCA News from Baghdad as it braces for war. "These children need us, we must look after them," she stressed.

Three of the nuns in the convent are from India, the fourth is from Bangladesh.
