TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday he was deeply angry over the "outrageous" killing of a Jordanian pilot, who was apparently burnt to death by Islamic State militants, and repeated Japan's resolve not to give in to terrorism.

Abe told a lower house budget committee he sympathized with Jordan and would expand Japan's humanitarian support in the region. He also said Tokyo would fulfill its responsibility to be part of the international fight against terrorism.

Islamic State militants released a video on Tuesday appearing to show a captured Jordanian pilot being burnt alive in a cage. On Sunday, Islamic State militants said they had beheaded a second Japanese man they had been holding hostage.
