Egypt hangs 15 convicted ISIS terrorists for 2013 attack

In Egypt’s first mass execution since 2015, 15 Islamists were executed Tuesday by hanging at two prisons after they were convicted of a deadly attack on a Sinai checkpoint in 2013, killing an army officer and eight conscripts. This multiple execution follows the ISIS massacre of more than 300 people in a Sinai mosque last month and the attempted assassination of two Egyptian ministers last week. President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has given the military a three-month deadline to quell the ISIS campaign of terror in Sinai by using “brute force.”

    Should have hung them on a bright sunny Saturday morning, . . . set up souvenier shops, . . . hot dog stands, . . . sold programs, . . . and put up long benches on which the youngsters could have stood and watched the thugs kick and scream.

    Might have given em a good reason not to become a terrorist.

    It’s not “hung”…. it’s “hanged”.
