Over the past three weeks in Egypt, a number of Christians have been hunted down and killed. Hundreds of Christians have fled their homes in recent months due to regular assassination of church members practicing their faith.
Suspected Islamic militants gunned down a Christian man inside his home in northern Sinai, officials and a priest said Friday, the latest in a string of sectarian killings there that has sent hundreds of Christians fleeing and raised accusations the government is failing to protect the community.
The militants stormed the home of Kamel Youssef, a plumber, on Thursday and shot him to death in front of his wife and children in the town of el-Arish, said two security officials and the priest.
According to Lisa Daftari at The Foreign Desk, militant groups sympathetic to ISIS have developed a kill list for Christians in the Sinai region.
