From Petition Creator: The last 4 Egyptians detained in Libya have returned home.

Her husband went to Libya, hoping to work and send money back home to his family in Egypt. Instead, she went to Libya to see his dead body. Ezzat Ibrahim Atallah and 50 of his Egyptian compatriots were captured, imprisoned, and tortured by an extreme Islamist group in Libya. This group accused them of prosyletizing, simply because they took Bibles and religious books with them. Ezzat is dead, but we still have time to advocate for the release of the rest of the prisoners.

      What is clear from the video is that the Egyptians were accused of proselytising - which was banned under Gaddafi-era laws that have not been rescinded. The captors, some wearing the moustacheless beards common to purist Salafi Sunni muslims, ask why they have religious images and bibles.
