Obama: Islamic State 'only interested in death and destruction'

US President Barack Obama has described Islamic State as an organisation only interested in "death and destruction".

Speaking after learning of a video purporting to show the killing of a Jordanian hostage, Mr Obama said the ideology of the militant group was "bankrupt".

He said the murder of Moaz al-Kasasbeh would "redouble the vigilance and determination... to make sure they are degraded and ultimately defeated"
