Jordan to step up its role in US-led coalition against ISIS

Jordan will intensify its efforts with an international coalition fighting ISIS, a spokesman for the government said Wednesday, a day after militants released a video purporting to show a captured Jordanian pilot being burnt alive. “We are talking about a collaborative effort between coalition members to intensify efforts to stop extremism and terrorism to undermine, degrade and eventually finish Daesh,” Mohammad al-Momani said in Amman, using an Arabic acronym for ISIS. He added that King Abdullah headed a meeting with top security officials on Wednesday.
