The Canadian parliament has voted to authorise the country's armed forces to join US-led air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq.

The vote allows air strikes for up to six months, but rules out the use of ground troops.

Canada will provide up to six CF-18 fighter planes, as well as surveillance and refuelling aircraft and about 600 personnel.

Canada is one of a number of countries joining the US-led campaign against IS.

The vote passed by 157 votes to 134 to back Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the issue.
