21 new martyrs in the christian church

Islamic State militants have released a new graphic video showing what they claim are the executions of 21 Egyptian Copts kidnapped in Libya. The video was published on the Twitter account of a website that supports the jihadists.
The Copts, native Christians of Egypt, are shown in the video dressed in orange jumpsuits with their hands tied behind their backs, while being walked along the seaside by jihadists dressed in black. The Egyptian men are then forced to kneel before being beheaded.

A caption on the five-minute video read: "The people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian church."
Before the killings, one of the militants stood with a knife in his hand and said: "Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for."
The IS militants first published the images of the 21 Copts on Thursday, in the group’s Dabiq magazine. The men were reportedly abducted in the Libyan city of Sirte on two separate occasions – seven on December 31 and 14 on January 3.
Later on Thursday, Cairo began to evacuate all Egyptian citizens wishing to return from Libya, and has renewed a travel alert to the neighboring country. At the same time, the Egyptian presidential office issued a statement vowing to return the kidnapped citizens.
Militants from IS – an Al-Qaeda offshoot group – control territory in Iraq and Syria and operate in other unstable regions of the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia, such as in eastern Libya and the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt.
The group has previously performed similar executions of Jordanian, Japanese, American, British, and French hostages, which were also filmed and published on social media. Previously known as ISIL/ISIS, the Islamic State is also said to have executed hundreds of civilians in militant-controlled areas of Syria and Iraq.
