Al-Hayat Media Center affiliated with the Islamic State released a new graphic video on Sunday showing the execution of the captured 21 Egyptian Copts in Libya.

The horrendous video shows footage of 21 kidnapped Copts in orange jumpsuits with their hands tied behind their backs, accompanied by jihadists dressed in black who forced them to kneel, then they were beheaded.

The video released under the title of 'A message signed with blood to the nation of the cross," featured the leader of the jihadists sending a threat message to the world, "oh Crusaders, safety for you will be only wishes, especially when you are fighting us all together, therefore we will fight you all together until the war comes to an end... and the sea you have hidden the body of Sheikh Osama Bin Laden in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood."

A few days ago, a group affiliated with the Islamic State (IS) has posted what it claims are photos of 21 Egyptian Christians in their online magazine Dabiq, threatening to kill them if the Egyptian authorities did not deliver Kamelia Shehata and Wafaa Kostanteen who are alleged to have converted to Islam.

Thousands of Egyptians have traveled to neighboring Libya searching of jobs, despite several travel warnings from the Egyptian government not to go to one of the most dangerous countries in the region.
