Two videos of Christians forgiving members of the so-called Islamic State for atrocities committed against their families have gone viral on social media.

In the first, a 10-year-old Iraqi girl named Myriam says she forgives IS for forcing her family out of their home in Qaraqosh.

The second features an Egyptian man named Beshir, whose two brothers were beheaded in Libya; their deaths were filmed and shown by IS.

The clips, shown on Middle East satellite TV SAT-7, are estimated to have been seen by over a million people, both live and online.
