UN calls on whole world to evict Islamic State after Paris genocide

The United Nations has called on all the countries of the world to fight the Islamic State terror group and evict them in the wake of the Paris massacre.

All 15 members of the UN Security Council voted to adopt the resolution – drafted by France – to “eradicate” the vile extremists.

The text urges countries to “take all necessary measures, in compliance with international law” to thwart the terror group.

But it falls short of providing a legal basis for military action against the so-called caliphate, which controls vast swathes of Syria and Iraq.

Earlier this week David Cameron suggested he would bomb the jihadists regardless of UN Security Council backing.

But the vote in support of France adds weight to his push to persuade Labour MPs to back British air strikes in Syria.
