BEIRUT: The Islamic State group captured a Jordanian pilot on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after his warplane from the US-led coalition crashed while on a mission against the jihadists over Syria. A senior Jordanian military official said the pilot was taken hostage by the “IS terrorist organization” in its northern stronghold region of Raqa. Both the jihadists and activists reporting to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the plane was hit by an anti-aircraft missile.
