Islamic State: Fighting fundamentalism with comic strips

Jordan remains a key member of the US-led coalition targeting Islamic State militants in Syria.

It stepped up its role in the campaign in February, in retaliation for the horrific burning alive of a Jordanian pilot.

But the country also has its own fight against home-grown extremists influenced by the agenda of IS and other fundamentalist Islamist organisations, such as al-Qaeda.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq - a predecessor group to IS - was a Jordanian.

Jordanian entrepreneur Suleiman Bakhit specialises in countering radical Islamist ideologies and produces superhero comic books for Arab youth.

He spoke to BBC News about what drives him.
