EGYPT (CNN NEWSOURCE) — An Illinois man and several of his relatives, including two sons and a grandchild, were among 29 killed during an ISIS attack on a church bus in Egypt.
Family members say the bus was full of Christians on their way to a remote Egyptian monastery when they were attacked by members of the Islamic state.
"He was going to the monastery in Egypt to get blessings from the blessed place and prayer with the family together," Gerges Morkous, Moshen's nephew, said. "Two of the children, you know, family members are dead and they got shot in the head."
Mohsen Morkous, 60, of Tinley Park, his two sons Sameh and Hany, both in their 30's, and a 4-year-old granddaughter Marvy Hany were killed.
