    BBC News - Obama: Nato coalition ready to join US against IS

    A coalition of Nato allies is ready to join the United States in military action against Islamic State (IS), US President Obama has announced.

    Speaking at the Nato summit in Wales, he said that a "core coalition" had been formed to tackle the threat.

    US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the group would be the US, Britain, Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Turkey.

    Barack Obama has called Islamic State (Isis) a "savage organisation" that must be destroyed as the US announced the formation of a "core coalition" to combat militants in Iraq, but warned it might take two or three years to squeeze the jihadis from the region.

    Speaking at the Nato summit in Wales, the US president said the organisation's members unanimously agreed on the need for immediate action against Isis militants because they pose a threat to members of the alliance.

    The US secretary of state, John Kerry, said a new 10-nation grouping would concentrate on strengthening the forces in Iraq who were fighting against Isis, but said intervention would not extend to western powers sending in troops.

    "We need to attack them in ways that prevent them from taking over territory, to bolster the Iraqi security forces and others in the region who are prepared to take them on, without committing troops of our own," Kerry said. "Obviously I think that's a red line for everybody here: no boots on the ground."

    BBC News - US President Obama says he 'has authority' to widen IS fight

     77483057 023820842 1 - NATO allies 'ready to fight I.S.'

    President Barack Obama has said that he has the authority to widen military action against Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq and Syria without the approval of Congress.

    He will still ask Congress to approve the arming of Syrian opposition forces.

    Mr Obama is due to give a speech on Wednesday night in which he will outline his anti-IS strategy.

    IS militants have taken over large parts of Syria and Iraq in recent months and have declared a "caliphate".

    In the past month, IS militants have beheaded two US journalists in protest against American airstrikes on its forces in Iraq.

    Mr Obama's moves come as Secretary of State John Kerry goes to the Middle East in an effort to build up regional support for a coalition to combat IS.

    Mr Kerry is travelling to Jordan and Saudi Arabia for talks with officials from 10 Arab states and Turkey.
    Edit: Latest

    US Secretary of State John Kerry has landed in Baghdad, Iraq at the start of a Middle East tour to build support for action against Islamic State.

    Mr Kerry is due to meet new Iraqi PM Haidar al-Abadi. The unannounced visit comes less than 48 hours after a unity government was agreed.

    An inclusive government was a condition for greater US and Nato support.

    Iraqi and Kurd forces are fighting IS militants who have taken over large parts of the country in recent months.

    The tour will continue in Saudi Arabia and other Arab capitals, where Mr Kerry will ask Iraq's Sunni neighbours to show solidarity with Baghdad.

    Female fighters of the PKK may be the Islamic State's worst nightmare

    MAKHMUR, Iraq — It’s an Islamic State fighter’s worst fear: to be killed by a woman.

    In northern Iraq, where Kurdish forces are rapidly regaining territory held by the Islamic State, that’s becoming real risk for the extremists.
