Christian mercy for Islamic State
Hate, anger and grief were all part of the reaction in Egypt to the news of mass beheadings of 21 Christian Egyptians in Libya last week. But one Christian Egyptian chose to share a different message, one of forgiveness and peace.
A video by a young Christian woman calling for mercy instead of hate has been watched over half a million times. And messages of support and solidarity poured in from Egypt's Christians and Muslims alike.
BBC Trending spoke to Anne Alfred, a young Egyptian singer, about her video and how life has changed for her as an Egyptian.
