The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group released a video on Tuesday purportedly showing the burning alive of a Jordanian pilot it had captured in December.
The video released online showed images of a man purported to be Maaz al-Kassasbeh engulfed in flames inside a metal cage.
After al-Kassasbeh addresses the camera, terrorists ignite a line of flammable liquid leading into the cage, burning him alive.
Last week ISIS demanded the release of a Jordanian-held female failed suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi in exchange for Kassasbeh and captive Japanese journalist Kenji Goto.
Jordan demanded proof that Kassasbeh was still alive before releasing the terrorist. In the end it never got word back before the deadline, and on Saturday ISIS released a video purportedly showing Goto being beheaded.
Just a week before that another Japanese captive, Haruna Yukawa, was likewise beheaded by ISIS. Goto had entered Syria as part of a humanitarian effort to document the situation of residents, and also to try and locate the captive Yukawa and free him.
Kassasbeh was captured on December 24 after his F-16 jet crashed while on a mission over northern Syria with the US-led coalition fighting the brutal jihadists.
