Jordan’s King Abdullah II warns of “WWIII”

Jordan’s King Abdullah II warned Tuesday of a “third world war against humanity”, describing the Islamic State group as “savage outlaws of religion” in the wake of the Paris attacks.

During an official visit to Kosovo, Abdullah said both Europe and Islam were under attack from the “scourge” of terrorism that could strike anywhere and at any time.

“We are facing a third world war against humanity and this is what brings us all together… this is a war, as I’ve said repeatedly, within Islam,” he told a press conference, stressing the high number of Muslim victims of IS.

In the deadliest terrorist attack on Europe since 2004, over 120 people were killed and hundreds injured in Paris on Friday the 13th.
