US Secretary of State John Kerry has called for a global coalition to combat Islamic State fighters' "genocidal agenda" after President Barack Obama admitted he had no strategy to tackle the group.

Kerry's call followed a decision by Britain to raise its terror alert level over fears of possible jihadist attacks.

The number of refugees who have fled Syria, where rebels have been battling the regime as well as jihadists, has now exceeded three million people.

The threat posed by IS, which has attracted hundreds of Western volunteers to its ranks, prompted Britain to raise its terror alert level yesterday.
