Jordan vows to do `everything` to save life of IS-held pilot

Jordan vowed Sunday to do all it could to save an airman held by the Islamic State group after the jihadists killed a Japanese journalist they had been holding.



Amman: Jordan vowed Sunday to do all it could to save an airman held by the Islamic State group after the jihadists killed a Japanese journalist they had been holding.

The kingdom "will do everything it can to save the life and secure the release of its pilot," Maaz al-Kassasbeh, who was captured by the jihadists after his plane crashed in Syria in December, government spokesman Mohammed al-Momeni told the official Petra news agency.

IS has been demanding the release of a convicted Iraqi jihadist on death row in Jordan in exchange for Kassasbeh`s life, a demand the government has expressed readiness to accept provided it is given proof he is still alive.
