Muslims in the area are demanding Christians pay them “jizya,” a kind of tax that Islamic law requires religious minorities to pay Muslims.

However, the tax is so high many Christians simply can’t afford it.

The Voice of the Martyrs reports that a Muslim man demanded a Christian in a village in Assiut pay him nearly $1,500.

The Christian sought help from local police but to no avail.

When he failed to come up with the money, several Muslims went to his home and shot him and his cousin to death.
