TRIPOLI, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Libyan police have found seven Egyptian Christians killed execution-style on a beach in eastern Libya, security officials and local residents said on Monday.

A police officer told Reuters the bodies were found with gunshots to the head outside Benghazi in the east, where assassinations, kidnappings and car bombs are common and Islamist militants are active. (Reporting by Tripoli newsroom; editing by Patrick Markey)
