Saudi Arabia has said 34 mainly Islamic nations have joined a new military alliance to fight terrorism.

A joint operations Centre is to be established in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

Countries from Asia, Africa and the Arab world are involved in the alliance but Saudi Arabia's main regional rival Iran is not.

It comes amid international pressure for Gulf Arab states to do more in the fight against so-called Islamic State.
