The British government is poised to accept 15 thousand Syrian refugees and hopes next month to get backing for air strikes against Islamic State militants.

Prime Minister David Cameron has been under pressure internationally and domestically to address the refugee crisis.

On Thursday, he said he was "deeply moved" by images of three-year-old Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi, found dead on a Turkish beach.

Cameron now intends to expand Britain's vulnerable persons relocation programme, taking in around 15 thousand refugees and launch military action against people traffickers.
