Australia says it is sending 600 troops to the Middle East ahead of possible combat operations against Islamic State militants in Iraq.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the deployment, initially to the United Arab Emirates, was in response to a specific US request.

Nearly 40 countries, including 10 Arab states, have signed up to a US-led plan to tackle the extremist group.

France is hosting a regional security summit tomorrow.

US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Paris late yesterday, after a four-day tour of the Middle East, trying to drum up support for action against IS.
