They were going by bus to a monastery. Masked men entered the vehicle and asked them to renounce their faith. They died as martyrs. Let's not forget them.
Lhe Egyptian Coptic Christians on the bus were shot dead in the head after another. 29 people, several of whose children were coldly executed. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State. Saturday in St. Mark's Cathedral from the town of Bani Mazar, the emotion was always high during the mass. Father Rashed says:
“They asked them to renounce their Christian faith, one by one, but all refused. "
Father Hedra recounts:
“Looks like we knelt them down. Most were shot in the back of the head, in the mouth or in the throat. "
For the Egyptian Copts, “it's not a surprise, just pain”. Christians expect the tragedies to start again and many of them to fall under the bullets of Daesh.
Let us not forget the Christians of Egypt.
Let us pray.
