In addition, another Coptic Orthodox family was martyred in Libya just a few weeks before 21 New Martyrs, because of their 15-year-old daughter’s unwillingness to wear the hijab at her school. Extremists stormed their home by night, killed her parents, and kidnapped the girl. When she resisted their advances, she was killed and left by the side of the road. They are truly worthy to be commemorated alongside the 21 New Martyrs. Their names are:

  • Magdy Sobhy Tawfeek
  • Sahar Talaat Rezk
  • Katherine Magdy Sobhy
