A video has been released that appears to show the Islamic State (IS) burning to death captured Jordanian pilot Mu'ath al-Kassasbeh.

The video, allegedly released by IS's al-Furqan media network, appears to show the pilot, who was captured by IS in December, in a cage being set on fire.

The video's authenticity has yet to be confirmed.
