Libya returns beheaded bodies to Egypt

Post by DJKeefy » Tue May 15, 2018 11:15 am

The bodies of 20 Egyptian Coptic Christians beheaded in Libya by ISIL in 2015 were flown back to Cairo on Monday, Egyptian state television reports.

A plane carrying the bodies of 20 Coptic Christians has arrived in Egypt from Libya.

The young men were killed by fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group in 2015, in the Libyan city of Sirte.

Their bodies were found last year following the defeat of ISIL there.

At least a little comfort for their grieving relatives and friends, but what a horrendous crime.
