Tunis, 7 October 2017:
The bodies of 21 Christians murdered by the so-called Islamic State in Sirte in February 2015 have been recovered and taken to a mortuary in Misrata for identification and a coroner’s inquest.
The announcement from the investigation bureau of Misrata’s Crime Prevention Department has been confirmed by the Attorney General’s office.
According to the bureau, all the heads were severed, the bodies were dressed in the orange “execution” outfits seen in a video of them being killed, and hands were been tied behind the backs.
Twenty of the murdered men were Egyptian, 13 of them from the same village of Al-Our in Egypt’s Minya governorate. The 21st was a sub-Saharan African, believed to be a Ghanaian.
The head of investigations at the Attorney General’s office, Sadek Assour, last week announced that the location where the bodies had been buried had been revealed by one of the IS members during interrogation.
