US officials say that several Arab countries have offered to take part in air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq.

But they add that any action is subject to approval from the Iraqi government.

US Secretary of State John Kerry says he is "extremely encouraged" by promises of military assistance to tackle the extremist group.

He spoke in Paris after a whirlwind tour of the Middle East trying to drum up support for action against IS.

France is due to host an international conference today, about Iraqi security and tackling IS.

On Saturday, the militant group released a video showing the beheading of UK hostage and aid worker David Haines.
