Cairo: Egypt`s Coptic Orthodox church said Sunday it was "confident" that those who beheaded a group of Egyptian Copts in Libya will be punished.

"The Orthodox church ... is confident its homeland would not rest until the evil perpetrators get their fair retribution for their wicked crime," the Coptic church said in a statement on its Facebook page.

The Islamic State jihadist group released a video earlier on Sunday purportedly showing the beheading of Egyptian Copts captured in Libya.
