February 15, 2015 - Libya: A group of 21 Egyptian Christians, who were seized by ISIS fighters while working in Libya, shown in a new video before they were purportedly killed. ISIS (Daesh), also known as ISIL, released a video claiming to have killed 21 Egyptian Christians who were captured in Libya. The Egyptians were wearing orange jumpsuits, being forced to the ground by militants dressed in black, and beheaded on a beach. The five-minute video had a caption that read, 'The people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian church.' The video first appeared on the Twitter feed of a Daesh sympathizer's website. Daesh claimed to have captured the Egyptians in Sirte in January. Before the killings, one of the militants stood with a knife in his hand and said: 'Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.' The 21 men, all migrant workers hailing from impoverished areas of central Egypt, were kidnapped between late December and early January. Fourteen came for the same village, Al-Our.

Trinidad Express:-

Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell in a statement late Sunday said he had held discussions with Prime Minister Perry Christie, the Attorney General as well as the leadership of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, “all of whom are responsible for the country’s national security, and they have no knowledge of any such terrorists or group of terrorists or any individual terrorist that is related to ISIS or any other terrorist organisation in The Bahamas”.

Mitchell has described the MSNBC report as “rubbish”, adding that the Bahamas mission in the United States “has been asked to reach out to US counterparts, to MSNBC and the Mr (Malcolm) Nance himself, to find out what the source of the allegation is. The mission has been asked to ask for a retraction forthwith.”

Reporting on the decision by United States President Donald Trump to sign an executive order banning citizens from seven countries, namely, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, an MSNBC contributor, Malcolm Nance, described as an expert in security and terrorism, indicated that the United States has “not banned terrorists from Brazil”, adding:

“ISIS has dozens of members from Brazil or Trinidad or The Bahamas who have more terrorist members than any of those other countries.”
