Convicted jihadists executed in Jordan after pilot's death
Jordan's King Abdullah II has promised to fight back hard against Islamic State, saying that the death of a Jordanian pilot at the militants' hands will not be in vain.
The remarks were made as the king held a crisis meeting with security chiefs.
He cut short a US trip after IS posted a video showing pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned alive.
Jordan executed two convicts, including failed female suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, in response.
Speaking to the BBC, Moaz al-Kasasbeh's father said: "I am now certain Jordan must fight [IS] in their hideouts, outside our borders".
