Jordanian king cuts US visit, returns home

Jordanian King Abdullah, who is currently on a visit of the US, decided to cut his visit short after Islamic State released a video reportedly showing the burning alive of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh, and is heading back to Jordan, Channel 2 reports.

Amman may execute the al-Qaeda female prisoner that IS initially wanted to swap for al-Kasasbeh in revenge for his killing by the terror group. AFP tweets that the Jordanian army vowed to avenge the death of the pilot.
