Libya returns remains of 20 beheaded Christians to Egypt


The remains of 20 Coptic Christians beheaded by the Islamic State in Libya three years ago were reportedly transferred back to Egypt earlier this week. The bodies reportedly arrived at the Cairo International Airport on Monday via a private plane from Libya. As many as 22 ambulances waited at the airport to transport the remains to the Zeinhom Morgue, according to Ahram Online. Pope Tawadros II, the head of the Coptic Church, was reportedly at the airport to receive the remains of the beheaded Christians. A victim from Ghana was reportedly not among the bodies that were flown back from Libya to Cairo.
