Egypt has offered to evacuate its citizens from Libya after Islamic State (IS) released photos which it says show 21 Coptic Egyptians kidnapped there.
President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said Egyptians would be airlifted out of Libya, state-run news agency Mena said.
The pictures released by IS were published in the latest online edition of the group's magazine Dabiq.
A statement from the office of Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said a special committee was closely following events in order to "clarify the situation and learn the truth".
In Cairo, the families of the 21 hostages have staged a protest accusing the president of not doing enough for them.
That's not part the plan. The ISIS agenda is to create worldwide hatred towards Islam.

There is a thread about that vid.
If IS makes enemies of every country around them how do they expect to create and maintain their state.
