WASHINGTON - Islamic State's burning to death of a captured Jordanian air force pilot is likely to harden Jordan's position as a member of the US-led coalition striking the militant group in Syria, US officials said on Tuesday.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Jordan has not retrenched from the air campaign against Islamic State since the group captured pilot Mouath al-Kasaesbeh after his jet crashed in northeastern Syria in December.

One official said he expected al-Kasaesbeh's killing "to have an electrifying effect" on Jordan.
