Jordan crowds show solidarity against Islamic State militants

Thousands of people have gathered in Jordan's capital city Amman in support of the government's fight against Islamic State (IS) militants.

The march is in solidarity with the family of pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh who was killed by the jihadists.

On Friday, Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said Jordanian air strikes on Islamic State (IS) targets were "the beginning of our retaliation" for the pilot's death.
