Thousands rallied in the Loop Monday to protest the recent killings of Assyrian Christians in Iraq.

The event was dubbed "The Black March."

Demonstrators called on the U.S. and Iraqi governments to do more to protect Christians in Iraq.

On October 31 militants took hostages in a Baghdad church. Nearly 60 were killed.

March organizers say 66 Iraqi churches have been attacked in the last seven years.
