The kidnapping of a Coptic shop owner in Naga Hamadi, Egypt

A video has emerged showing the kidnapping of a Coptic shop owner in Naga Hamadi, Egypt. These abductions are a common occurrence and large sums of money are usually demanded from the families otherwise the victims are killed. We hear of countless accounts of such incidents targeting Coptic traders but this is the first kidnapping captured on CCTV.

These brazen attacks happen in broad daylight. You will notice that the Coptic Christians in the shop are totally powerless to defend themselves, as any resistance would mean death to all of them.

This video was sent to us by an Arabic speaking Coptic Christian lady.
