US President Barack Obama yesterday, outlined plans for a broad international coalition to defeat Islamic State extremists in Iraq and Syria, but European allies gave a cautious reaction.

Speaking at a NATO summit, Obama said the United States would also try to involve Middle Eastern allies in a strategy to counter the jihadists, who have overrun large swathes of territory.

The president said regional involvement was "absolutely critical" - although the State Department said Washington had "no plans" for any military coordination with Iran in the fight.
