 Britain's Prince Charles arrived in Amman on Saturday, to begin his six-day tour of the Middle East.

Prince Charles was welcomed by Jordanian officials, including King Abdullah's religious adviser Prince Ghazi Bin Muhammad, after landing in the capital.

He is expected to hold bilateral talks with King Abdullah on Sunday.

King Abdullah has vowed to avenge the death of a Jordanian pilot, Mouath al-Kasaesbeh, after a video was released purporting to show him being burned alive by Islamic State militants.

Jordan launched air strikes on Thursday in response to the group's killing of the captive pilot.
