    Video Purportedly Shows ISIS Beheading 21 Egyptian Christians

    A new video released by ISIS on Sunday appears to show the militants beheading 21 Egyptian Christians kidnapped in Libya, NBC News reported. The Egyptians, dressed in orange jump suits, were beheaded after being forced down on the ground on a beach. Each of the victims, who are all male, is paired with a masked, knife-wielding terrorist and, after a brief statement by the ISIS leader, they are all killed. An early caption in the video says the location is "Wilayat Tarabulus by the Mediterranean Sea," which suggests that it was filmed near Tripoli. The video appeared on the Twitter feed of a website that supports ISIS. Egypt's official state news agency said that Egypt's Coptic Church spokesman confirmed killings.
