A Martyr's Story

Here's an snippet from a very sad, yet inspirational story that I first read about in National Review about a young Christian student in Egypt who was beaten and killed by his fellow students and teacher for refusing to remove or cover his cross.

From Faith Freedom:
A Christian teenager was beaten to death by Muslim classmates at their school in Egypt after he refused to conceal his cross tattoo and necklace.

Ayman Nabil Labib (17) was set upon after his Muslim teacher told him to cover up the cross tattoo on his wrist; he refused and instead boldly displayed another cross that he was wearing under his clothes.

His parents said that their son was murdered in “cold blood”; first Ayman’s teacher nearly choked the teenager in the classroom, and then some Muslim students joined in the beating. Ayman fled to the toilets, where the assault continued. He died at the scene.
