New IS Video Shows Jordanian Pilot Burned to Death

Hosted by

A video published online by the so-called Islamic State claims to show a captured Jordanian pilot being burned alive. President Obama responded, "Should in fact this video be authentic, it's just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization".

Jordan has confirmed the pilot’s death, and a spokesman has promised “punishment and revenge.” Rukmini Callimachi covers Islamic extremism for the New York Times.
