The United States tripled its estimate for the number of Islamic State fighters as it geared up for a "more aggressive" air campaign and Arab nations rallied behind President Barack Obama's nascent coalition against the militants.

French President Francois Hollande was on his way on today to Baghdad where he will meet his Iraqi counterpart Fuad Masum in a show of support.

France has said it is prepared to participate in air strikes against the militants in Iraq "if necessary", and hosts an international conference on Iraq on September 15th.

Ten Arab states including Saudi Arabia "agreed to do their share in the comprehensive fight" against Islamic State.
