Missing Christian in Egypt, Magdy Habashi, found decapitated while Coptic priest Mina Abboud Sharobeen killed

Security officials say suspected militants have killed a Christian merchant in the northern Sinai Peninsula.

Magdy Habashi, age, 60, was abducted from the town of Sheikh Zweid. His decapitated body was found in a cemetery, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The AP story detailed that Habashi is the second Christian to be killed in northern Sinai in less than a week. Coptic Christian priest Mina Abboud Sharobeen was gunned down by suspected militants last Saturday as he walked in an outdoor market.

There has been a backlash against Christians by Islamist militants for their activism against former President Mohammed Morsi.

The Blaze detailed yet another killing:

With a mob of Muslim extremists on their tail, the Christian businessman and his nephew climbed up on the roof and ran for their lives, jumping from building to building in their southern Egyptian village. Finally they ran out of rooftops.

Forced back onto the street, they were overwhelmed by several dozen men. The attackers hacked them with axes and beat them with clubs and tree limbs, killing Emile Naseem, 41. The nephew survived with wounds to his shoulders and head and recounted the chase to The Associated Press.

The mob’s rampage through the village of Nagaa Hassan, burning dozens of Christian houses and stabbing to death three other Christians as well, came two days after the military ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi from power. It was no coincidence the attackers focused on Naseem and his family: He was the village’s most prominent campaigner calling for Morsi’s removal.
