The Islamic State has released a video of a Jordanian pilot Muadh al-Kasasbeh, being burned alive in a cage.
Jordanian officials are saying that despite cynical efforts by the group widely known as ISIS to bargain for the man’s life in recent negotiations, he probably was killed as early as January 3.
“Those who doubted the atrocities committed by ISIS now have the proof,” Jordanian government spokesman Mohammad al-Momani said on state TV. “Those who doubted Jordan’s power will soon see the proof as well. (Al-Kasasbeh’s) blood will not be shed in vain.”
In Amman, a crowd hit the streets, similarly calling for revenge.
“With the blood and self,” protesters chanted, “we are sacrificing ourselves for Moath.”
One demonstrator held a poster that read: “They burned our hearts, so let’s burn their dens, and their prisoners in our prisons.”
