Human Rights Watch Director Criticized Over Islamic State Tweet

"But, did you ask ISIS 'pretty pretty please stop massacaring innocent people.'?"

Supporters and family members of Jordanian pilot, Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh express their anger of his reported killing, at the tribal gathering chamber, Amman, Jordan, Tuesday, 3, 2015. A video released online Tuesday purportedly showed al-Kaseasbeh who was captured by the Islamic State extremist group in Syria being burned to death by his captors following a weeklong drama over a possible prisoner exchange. At the tribal meeting place where the pilot's relatives have waited for weeks for word on his fate, chants against Jordan's King Abdullah II erupted and some family members wept.
