ISIS Captures 86 Eritrean Christians in Libya

Tuesday, June 9, 2015 | Tag Cloud

The ISIS terror group kidnapped 86 Eritrean Christians from a people-smugglers' caravan in Libya last week, Fox News reported.

The defense official confirmed initial reports of the mass kidnapping to Fox News after seeing a recent intelligence report. The independent Libya Herald newspaper reported that the convoy was ambushed by militants south of Tripoli before dawn this past Wednesday morning.

Meron Estafanos, the co-founder of the Stockholm-based International Commission on Eritrean Refugees, told the paper that the group of migrants included "about 12 Eritrean Muslims and some Egyptians. They put them in another truck and they put 12 Eritrean women Christians in a smaller pick-up". --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/06/09/isis-captures-86-eritrean-christians-in-libya-us-official-confirms/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Dying for Christ (and quick to heaven) is just so much easier than living a lie with Satan's servants ruling over you.
