02/21/2017 Egypt (WWM): The Islamic State has released a propaganda video, vowing to and wipe out Egypt’s Coptic Christians and “liberate Cairo”.
The video also purports to show the last statement of the suicide bomber responsible for the 11 December attack on a church in Cairo, which killed at least 28 people – mostly women and children.
The man is identified as “Abu Abdallah al-Masri”, thought to be the nom de guerre of 22-year-old student Mahmoud Shafik, whom President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi had already identified as the culprit.
“To my brothers in captivity: rejoice, you believers, do not falter or grieve. I swear to God we will very soon liberate Cairo and free you from captivity. We will come bearing explosives, I swear we will, so rejoice you believers,” the man says in the video.
