A group of reported Islamic State terrorists destroyed a Catholic church in what appears to be the Philippines, according to footage released by the ISIS-affiliated Amaq news agency Sunday. The video shows several members of the terrorist group entering the church and proceeding to destroy the various icons and vestments inside. They later pile up various pictures, texts and other religious paraphernalia near the altar and set them on fire before leaving the building.
