Updated on

Islamic State militants are holding a Jordanian fighter pilot captive in Syria after his warplane went down during a mission against the al-Qaeda breakaway group.

The U.S. military said the Jordanian F-16 fighter jet that crashed near the city of al-Raqqah wasn’t shot down by Islamic State, as the group alleged.
