IS replays pilot’s death on big screens

In Raqaa, the Islamic State group’s de facto capital in Syria, Islamic State fighters gleefully play footage of the death of Jordanian pilot Lt. Moaz Kasasbeh on big-screen televisions, according to Syrian activists in the city.

Before dawn Wednesday, Jordan executed two al-Qaeda prisoners, hours after IS posted video of the pilot’s death.
