Turkey's parliament authorised military action against the Islamic State militant group, whose fighters have battled their way to the doorstep of a key town across the border in Syria.

The move allows the deployment of armed forces in Syria and Iraq, as well as the transit of foreign forces in Turkish territory for operations against IS militants.

The broad mandate does not commit Turkey to sending soldiers into the two neighbouring countries, where IS has captured large areas, declaring an Islamic "caliphate" and committing widespread atrocities.

Washington, which has been striving to build an international alliance against the militants, welcomed Turkish lawmakers' decision.
