Egypt's Christians flee Sinai amid Islamic State killing spree

Christian families and students fled Egypt's North Sinai province in droves on Friday after Islamic State killed the seventh member of their community in just three weeks.

A Reuters reporter saw 25 families gathered with their belongings in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia's Evangelical Church and church officials said 100 families, out of around 160 in North Sinai, were fleeing. More than 200 students studying in Arish, the province's capital, have also left.

Seven Christians have been killed in Arish between Jan. 30 and Thursday. Islamic State, which is waging an insurgency there, claimed responsibility for the killings, five of which were shootings. One man was beheaded and another set on fire.

"I am not going to wait for death," Rami Mina, who left Arish on Friday morning, said by telephone. "I shut down my restaurant and got out of there. These people are ruthless."

Sectarian attacks occur often in Egypt but are usually confined to home burning, crop razing, attacks on churches, and forced displacement.

Arish residents said militants circulated death lists online and on the streets, warning Christians to leave or die.

"My father is the second name on their list; anyone Christian they put on the list" Munir Adel, a vegetable seller who fled on Friday, said as he huddled with four family members at the Evangelical Church, waiting for church officials to find them a place to stay.

Adel's parents did not leave Arish because of their old age, he said. "They could be killed at any moment."

MSM is dead. They don't work if no one bothers to watch or listen anymore, and that's happening right before our very eyes.

They'd know they were dead already if they didn't suck so bad at news. It will take them a while to catch on.

I look forward to the slow, pathetic decay of their hold on people. It will be fun to watch!

Cheerios cereal brand is under fire for sending out billions of potentially disease-spreading seeds in an attempt to help save bees from extinction.

The brand recently announced that it would mail out free wildflower seeds as part of its "Save the Bees" campaign.

The seeds, once planted, were meant to provide more nectar for the declining bee population.

As of Friday, Cheerios had sent out 1.5 billion seeds, according to General Mills, which owns the cereal brand.

There's one problem with Cheerios' charitable effort, however: some of the wildflower species included in the packet of seeds can do serious damage to various ecosystems across the US, reports Lifehacker.

The packets contain more than 20 species of seeds, including some that are banned in certain states because they can "take up all the space and use up all the resources" and "spread disease" that could be detrimental to plants and humans, an ecologist told Lifehacker.

For example, the packets contain California poppy seeds that are listed as an "invasive exotic pest plant" in the Southeast, according to Lifehacker.

In response to the article, Cheerios said none of the seed varieties in the packets are considered invasive and that all of them are already available at retailers across the US.

"General Mills worked with Veseys Seeds and their experts on this program," the company said in a statement. "It has been field-tested and is known to attract honey bees, bumble bees, and other native bees such as mining bees, leaf cutter bees, sweet bees and long-horned bees."

Cheerios has also been responding to concerned consumers on Facebook.

Without bees we won't have to worry about any plants taking over anything.
