Japan prime minister asks Jordan king for help with hostages

SHAFAQNA- Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Saturday called Jordan’s King Abdullah II to discuss the two Japanese nationals being held captive by Islamic State extremists.

Abe asked the king to help in any way possible to find out information about the fate of the two hostages, NHK reported. It was the second time since the hostage crisis unfolded last Tuesday that Abe has called King Abdullah, whom he met during an official visit to Jordan last week.

This past week, Abe has also called Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and British Prime Minister David Cameron to see if their forces in the Middle East could help.
