Jordan says it is prepared to meet the demands of Islamic State militants in order to save the life of a Jordanian hostage.
On Tuesday, the Sunni extremists released a video in which they demanded that Jordan release a woman who was sentenced to death over an attack in Amman that killed 60 people. If the release didn't happen in 24 hours, the militants said, they would kill a Jordanian pilot and a Japanese journalist.
