ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Speaking during the weekly Prime Minister's Questions, Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron told the House of Commons that the murder of a Japanese journalist and a Jordanian pilot by Islamic State fighters was "sickening". "I'm sure the whole house will join me in condemning the sickening murders in Syria of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto and the Jordanian pilot, Lieutenant Muath al-Kasaesbeh. I can assure the house that we will not stop until the murderous ISIL extremists behind this and their poisonous ideology are eradicated," Cameron said. Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh appeared to be burned alive by the hardline group in a video released on Tuesday (February 3). Japanese journalist Kenji Goto was beheaded by the group, with images of his death released in a video last Saturday (January 31).
