ISIS Abducts 12 Egyptians in Libya

The Islamic State in Libya has abducted 12 more Egyptians.  They were reportedly laborers preparing to return back to Egypt. According to RT Arabic, the Egyptians were abducted in Sirte, late in the evening of Sunday, September 13.

Coptic Christians are among those kidnapped. The Egyptian ministry has not issued a statement either confirming or denying the news.

Last February, the Islamic State in Libya abducted and slaughtered on video 21 Coptic Christians.  Earlier, eyewitnesses had said that, after abducting a number of Egyptians, they released the Muslims while reserving the Christians for slaughter.
