(While Obama is downplaying the fate of some random folks on a beach, the Islamic State is busy murdering people by the score)
Jihadist militants from Islamic State (IS) have burned to death 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, the local police chief says.
Exactly who these people were and why they were killed is not clear, but Col Qasim al-Obeidi said he believed some were members of the security forces.
IS fighters captured much of the town, near Ain al-Asad air base, last week.
Col Obeidi said a compound that houses the families of security personnel and local officials was now under attack.
2. Douglas Murray: ISIS & Christians in Libya
The Pope unexpectedly went off script following a meeting with a representative of the Church of Scotland in the Vatican, making a short speech in his native Spanish in which he claimed the murdered Egyptians’ last words were ‘Jesus help me’.
The religious leader’s unscheduled remarks followed reports by local media that another 35 Egyptians have been kidnapped in areas of Libya controlled by local Islamist militants and ISIS.
The abductions of the Egyptians came after Egypt exacted its revenge on Islamic State militants today with air strikes which a military chief claims killed at least 50 people.
(Nice to see the pope actually say something about the persecution of Christians. Its almost like he is one. But I do not believe he mentioned the actual motive for the slaughter in this article)
