Ethiopia began three days of mourning on Tuesday with joint Christian and Muslim prayers for some 30 Ethiopian Christians killed in Libya by Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) fighters, as lawmakers considered what could be done to respond to the killings.
"If [ISIL] were religious, they would never have killed human beings," said Kedir Hussein, a Muslim who attended the joint prayers. How on earth can such a merciless and horrible act happen to humankind," Yekunamlak's sister, Eyerusalem Asfaw, told Al Jazeera. "When a human being is slaughtered like a sheep, it’s horrific." Family members stopped getting calls from Eyassu a month ago and grew worried, his brother said.
"The death of these young people is like someone was killed in my family." Ethiopia, whose population is almost two-thirds Christian, has angered armed groups over its military's attacks on neighboring Somalia, whose population is almost entirely Muslim. Seyom Yekunamlak, the older brother of Eyassu, said he first learned about his brother’s death on Sunday evening while checking the news on Facebook. Eyassu and his friend Balcha Beleta — whose death is also seen in the video — were believed to have left Ethiopia through Sudan and later traveled to Libya, where they planned to take a boat to Europe before being seized by ISIL, relatives of the men told the Associated Press on Monday. I will try my luck too, but not through Libya," said Meshesa Mitiku, a longtime friend of the two victims. There is no chance to improve yourself here." Europe's southern shores have seen thousands of migrants fleeing war and hardship, hundreds of whom have died in a string of tragic shipwrecks.
Blair Priday from the Ethiopian Heritage Fund said: "Ethiopia has been overlooked as a source of these fantastic things.
"Many of these old Christian relics can only be reached by hiking and climbing to remote monasteries as roads are limited in these mountainous regions.
The incident, which came to light over the weekend following the release of a video purporting to show the killings, have horrified Ethiopians and sparked global condemnation, including from Pope Francis, who expressed his "great distress and sadness" at the "shocking violence perpetrated against innocent Christians." The ISIL video shows fighters in Libya holding captives, who are described as "followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church." A masked fighter in black brandishing a pistol makes a statement threatening Christians if they do not convert to Islam.
