The Australian cabinet has given its approval for Australian fighter jets to join the US-led military action against Islamic State targets in Iraq.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said IS was a “death cult” that had “declared war on the world” and must be stopped. Australia has sent six war planes and 600 military personnel to the Middle East.
