(Worthy News)-- A video purportedly made by Islamic State and posted on social media sites on Sunday appeared to show militants shooting and beheading about 30 Ethiopian Christians in Libya, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Reuters was not able to verify the authenticity of the video but the killings resemble past violence carried out by Islamic State, which has expanded its reach from strongholds in Iraq and Syria to a conflict-ridden Libya.
The video, in which militants call Christians crusaders and say they are out to kill Muslims, showed about 15 men being beheaded on a beach and another group of the same size shot in their heads in Libya's southern desert interior.
Both groups of men are referred to in a subtitle as "worshipers of the cross belonging to the hostile Ethiopian church". --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/New-Islamic-State-video-shows-shooting-beheading-of-Ethiopian-Christians-398563" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
