Tension in Pilot Town’s as Death Confirmed

Wed Feb 4, 2015 14:05:24

A building belonging to a local governor in Karak, the hometown of murdered Jordanian pilot, Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh, was burnt down by locals on Tuesday.

The attack followed the news that a video released online purportedly showed al-Kaseasbeh, captured by the ISIS group in Syria, being burned to death. The Jordanian military has confirmed his death.

Jordan is a key ally in the US-led military coalition against the ISIS group, but the airstrikes against fellow Muslims are not popular in Jordan, AP reports.

Al-Kaseasbeh is the only pilot from the coalition to have been captured to date.
