‘US stands in solidarity with Jordan’

A White House spokesperson says the US is working to confirm the authenticity of the video showing Islamic State executing Moaz al-Kasasbeh.

“The United States strongly condemns ISIL’s actions and we call for the immediate release of all those held captive by ISIL,” they said, using another acronym used for IS or ISIS.

“We stand in solidarity with the Government of Jordan and the Jordanian people.”

President Obama says the video is another indication of the “viciousness and barbarity” of the organization.

Obama adds that if the video is confirmed as genuine, it would “re-double the determination” of the global coalition to destroy IS, the Independent reports.
