White House: ISIL’s ‘barbarity knows no bounds’

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is condemning the purported killing of 21 Egyptians by militants in Libya affiliated with the Islamic State group as “despicable” and “cowardly.”

White House press secretary Josh Earnest adds in a statement Sunday that the group’s barbarity “knows no bounds.”

Earnest says the killings underscore the need for a political resolution to the conflict in Libya. He says the situation in Libya only benefits terrorist groups, and he called on the Libyan people to unite in opposition to terrorism.

Video purporting to show the mass beheading of Coptic Christian hostages was released Sunday by IS.

The Associated Press could not independently verify the video. But the Egyptian government and the Coptic Church, which is based in Egypt, have said the video is authentic.

  1. Evil incarnate. How can anyone be this evil? They then say it is in the name of their religion? If so, they are professing that their religion is based on evil? Like any religeous zealot, be it Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc., they pick and choose the pieces out of their religeous books as they choose as an excuse to do evil things. They choose to ignore the parts about peace, love and caring for others less fortunate. To use religion as an excuse for doing evil things is to commit blasphemy of that religion.

  2. Qatar, usually friendly to the US has people marching in the streets because of the terrorist killings of the muslims in NC.
    I am in NC and to my knowlege our dozy governor has not even responded to them.
