Two Coptic Christians were shot in northeastern Libya after they refused to convert to Islam, according to Morning Star News, a news service that reports on the persecution of Christians.
During a September 25 robbery, Waleed Saad Shaker, 25, and Nash’at Shenouda Ishaq, 27, were shot after refusing to convert. Shaker died immediately, while Ishaq told a relative what happened before he died, according to the report.
