US-led efforts to raise an international coalition to destroy ISIS are to build up after leaders from 24 countries pledged at a crisis meeting in Paris earlier this week to use “whatever means necessary” to defeat what they called a “global threat”.

The talks were held as France began reconnaissance flights over Iraq after announcing it was ready to join US air strikes there. Philip Hammond, Britain’s foreign secretary said the UK would play a leading role in the coalition, suggesting military efforts beyond its current involvement in arming the Kurds and flying reconnaissance missions. The US says nearly 40 countries have already offered to help fight the transnational ISIS jihadi movement.
