US President Barack Obama is to set out his "game plan" against Islamic State militants in a speech on Wednesday.

Obama, who has been criticised for failing to outline a strategy, told the media that the US would degrade IS, shrink their territory and "defeat them".

US jets bombed IS targets in western Iraq for the first time yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Arab League has vowed to take "all necessary measures" against IS, which has seized a huge amount of territory from Iraq and Syria.

The league gave its backing to a Security Council resolution passed last month calling on member states to stem the flow of weapons and money to extremists in Iraq and Syria.
