Obama says clip shows Islamic State’s barbarity

US President Barack Obama says the video showing the burning alive of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh highlights Islamic State’s “barbarity.”

A clip on the vine network shows the man crouching as he burns to death, still writhing in agony for several seconds. Islamic State reportedly previously asked adherents via a hashtag to suggest novel ways to execute the hostage.
