Libya recovers remains of 21 beheaded Coptic Christians

Libyan authorities have recovered the remains of 21 Coptic Christians who were beheaded by so-called “Islamic State” (IS) militants more than two years ago, the anti-IS organization al-Bonyan al-Marsous announced Saturday .

The gruesome discovery was made in the seaside city of Sirte — the home town of former dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who was toppled in 2011.

A statement said officials were led to the site by an IS militant who had witnessed the attack in early 2015.

  • Remember – neither Obama nor Trudeau were interested in helping Coptic Christians.

    And then there’s Benghazi.

      Trudeau still isn’t. He doesn’t care for Christians of any denomination or background. Yazidis aren’t close to his heart, either.

      • Which is why he was embarrassed into letting them in the country. This needs to be remembered at election time.
