Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has announced that Canada will extend its air strike campaign against Islamic State into Syria.

Canada's mission against IS will also be extended for one year, beyond October's election and well into 2016.

Opposition leaders have criticised Harper for drawing Canada into a war with unclear objectives.

The move means Canada will be the first Nato country, other than the United States, to strike inside Syria.
