The bodies of the seven Egyptians killed in Libya two days ago arrived in Cairo on Wednesday.
Egypt's army chief Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has assigned a military plane to transport the bodies of the seven victims to their hometown of Sohag to be buried in family cemeteries, said armed forces spokesman Colonel Ahmed Ali.
The names of victims are Talaat Sadik Babawy, Hany Gerges Habib, Fawzy Fathy Sadik, Edward Nashad Boules, Ayoub Sabry Tawfik, Sameh Romany and Nadhy Gerges Habib.
The seven Coptic Christians were found shot in the head execution style on a beach outside the city of Benghazi, Libya after being abducted from their apartments on Monday. The area is known as a hot spot for assassinations, kidnappings and car bombs as well as Islamist gunmen.
No group has claimed responsibility so far for the murders. The Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church has already demanded an investigation into the killings.
