Jordan pilot hostage Moaz al-Kasasbeh 'burned alive'

A video published online by Islamic State militants claims to show Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned alive.

The video, which could not immediately be verified, showed a man standing in a cage and engulfed in flames.

Lt Moaz al-Kasasbeh was captured when his plane came down in December on a mission to support the US-led, anti-IS military coalition.

Jordan has been attempting to secure his release as part of a prisoner swap.
