Kasasba, Jordanian Pilot, Islamic State, Burned alive

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria released a video claiming to have burned the Jordanian Pilot Moaz Al-Kasasba alive.

The 22-minute long video was circulated among websites close to IS before it went viral. The video was under the title Shifaa Al-Sudur (The Recovery of Chests). Al-Kasasba was dressed in orange in a cage and surrounded by IS fighters, whose Emir set Al-Kasasba on fire.

The period IS had given for a swap deal between the Iraqi Sajida Al-Rishawi and the Japanese hostage, Kenji Goto, came to an end last Thursday. It was assumed that Al-Kasasba’s life was to be spared if the deal went on. The Japanese detainee was killed last Saturday.
