Assyrian Church Leader dies

More than 1,000 Assyrians gathered on Chicago’s North Side for the funeral of a top religious leader Wednesday. Patriarch Mar Dinkha the Fourth died a week ago. He led the Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East - based here in Chicago - for nearly 40 years. WBEZ’s Lynette Kalsnes was at the funeral, and she’s here to tell us about the Patriarch and his legacy.
