Cairo was Wednesday preparing to evacuate thousands of Egyptians who found work in Libya after ISIS beheaded 21 Christian Copts. In western Iraq, the Islamic State is said to have burned to death 45 people in the town of al-Baghdadi not far from an air base where hundreds of US Marines are training Iraqi soldiers. The identities of the victims are not clear but are believed members of the security forces which fought the Islamists for control of the town which fell last week.
