France to join anti-IS air strikes


WASHINGTON D.C.: President Barack Obama on Thursday (Friday in Manila) hailed Congress for backing his plan to arm moderate Syrian rebels and France for signing off on air strikes in Iraq, victories for his campaign to destroy the Islamic State group. French President Francois Hollande said that France would join the United States in conducting air strikes against Islamic State—but only in Iraq. “As soon as we have identified targets, we will act. . . within a short timeframe,” he
vowed.   AFP
