United States President Barack Obama called for an international front against jihadists in Iraq and Syria after they beheaded a second American reporter, as Britain and France weighed military action.

Britain, with one of its nationals also under threat of beheading, said it would not rule out taking part in air strikes if necessary and French President Francois Hollande likewise raised the prospect of a military response to the threat posed by IS.

Obama said Washington was determined to halt the IS threat but warned it would depend on close cooperation with partners in the region.

And the United Arab Emirates voiced its readiness to “take needed measures”, as Iraq condemned the beheadings as “an act of savagery and evil” that showed the urgency of defeating the jihadists.
