BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – Two Egyptian Christians were attacked by unknown militants on Wednesday after they were abducted from their home in the Sinai Peninsula.

Sa’ad Hanna (Age 65) and his son Medhat (Age 45) were identified by Egyptian officials as the victims of this gruesome assault in the Sinai.

“The officials said Saad Hana, 65, was shot dead and his son Medhat, 45, was abducted and burned alive before their bodies were dumped on a roadside in el-Arish Wednesday,” Associated Pressed reported.

Egypt’s Coptic Christians have been constantly targeted by Islamic State (ISIS) and Muslim Brotherhood terrorists for years, causing many to flee their homes in order to avoid persecution.
