ISIL affiliate in Egypt kills Croatian hostage

World Bulletin / News Desk

An ISIL affiliate in Egypt said Wednesday that it had killed a Croatian hostage over failure by the Egyptian government to release female political prisoners.

The Wilayet Sinai (Province of Sinai) said on Twitter that it had killed Tomislay Salopek.

Salopek, 30, who worked for Ardiseis Egypt, a unit of French firm CGG, which specializes in oil and gas geology, was abducted in Cairo on July 22.

He appeared in a video last week, in which he appealed to the Egyptian government to free female political prisoners in Egyptian jails within 48 hours or he would be killed by the ISIL-linked group.

There has been no comment from the Egyptian government on the report.

Active in the northern Sinai Peninsula, Wilayet Sinai has claimed most attacks against security forces in the past two years.
