Tokyo: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday he was deeply angry over the "outrageous" killing of a Jordanian pilot, who was apparently burnt to death by Islamic State militants, and repeated Japan`s resolve not to give in to terrorism.

Abe told a lower house budget committee he sympathised with Jordan and would expand Japan`s humanitarian support in the region. He also said Tokyo would fulfil its responsibility to be part of the international fight against terrorism.

Islamic State militants released a video on Tuesday appearing to show a captured Jordanian pilot being burnt alive in a cage. On Sunday, Islamic State militants said they had beheaded a second Japanese man they had been holding hostage.
