The UN Security Council yesterday urged the world to step up support for the Iraqi government and its security forces in their intensifying battle against Islamist fighters.

In a unanimous statement, the 15-member council condemned the "vicious string of suicide, vehicle-borne and other attacks" in Baghdad and surrounding provinces carried out by the Islamic State organisation.

The council "urged the international community, in accordance with international law, to further strengthen and expand support for the government of Iraq, including Iraqi security forces, in the fight against IS and associated armed groups,".
