Christians in Egypt flee after killings in N. Sinai

ISTANBUL, Turkey (BP) -- Hundreds of Christians continue to flood out of the Egyptian town of Al-Arish in northern Sinai after the third Coptic Christian in a week was gunned down on Feb. 23, reportedly by Islamic State-linked militants. The mass exodus comes after three Coptic Christians were killed in what appears to be the work of militants making good on Islamic State (IS) threats issued on a Feb. 19 video promising to rid the country of "idolaters." The latest slaying was the seventh killing of a Copt on the Sinai Peninsula in a month.
