Coptic Christian village devastated by Islamic State beheadings

Egyptian planes have attacked so-called Islamic State (IS) targets in Libya as a response to the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christian hostages.

F-16 jets took off to strike training camps and weapons stores at Derna, in a country where Islamist extremists are seen as a growing threat.

Orla Guerin reports from the village Al-Our, in Minya, which was home to 13 of the 21 Christians murdered by IS.
