17 February, 12:10

    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, FEBRUARY 17 - Cairo's al-Azhar University, one of the main centers of Sunni Muslim learning, has issued a decree stating that Muslims must not watch nor publicize a video showing the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians carried out by ISIS in Libya.

    The institution, Egyptian media reported on Tuesday, called on the media not to publish ''crimes by terrorists'' to avoid the ''evil objective'' of influencing the morals of Muslims, justifying the propagation of Islamophobia and defaming Islam worldwide.(ANSAmed).
