Video: Islamic State Themed Wedding Party in Egypt!

An Egyptian bride and groom took their creativity a bit too far with a Daesh/ISIS wedding theme!

Masked men armed with knives lead the bride and groom to the dance floor as a jihadi anthem is played over loudspeakers.

An Egyptian bride and groom were placed in a cage by masked men brandishing knives as part of an Islamic State-themed wedding.

The video, which was shot in Menoufia, Egypt, begins with a wedding attendant with his face covered conducting as a jihadi anthem used in propaganda released by the militants is played.

He then leads the bride and groom into the cage, similar to that used in the horrific video of Jordanian pilot Mu'ath Al Kassasbeh being burned alive in February.

Inside the newlywed break into dance along with the masked attendants as other guests clap and cheer them on.

The idea was apparently thought up by the groom, who had told his bride-to-be he was planning something different for the wedding.

Only the groom, his attendants and the photographer, Ahmed Kassem, knew of the plan beforehand.

As the scene unfolded, some guests believed the wedding was being stormed by IS militants, according to the Youm7 newspaper.

Last month, footage emerged showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by IS militants in Libya.

Egypt responded by bombing IS camps, training sits and weapons storage areas along the border with Libya.
