Coptic Christians flee N. Sinai homes after Islamist massacre

Hundreds of Christian families arrived Friday in the Suez Canal town of Ismailia in flight from their northern Sinai home town of El Arish where ISIS' Sinai affiliate has massacred some 30 Coptic Christians since early January. Thursday, terrorists shot Kamel Youssef to death in front of his wife and children in El-Arish. The day before, they killed a Christian man and burned his son alive, killing three other Christians in drive-by shootings.
