Arab League Vows to Confront ISIS

The Arab League has agreed to take urgent measures to combat Islamic State extremists as one of its suicide bombers killed at least 16 people at a meeting of Sunni tribal fighters and security troops in Iraq. While the resolution doesn’t explicitly back American military action against IS, they were set to endorse a U.S. aerial campaign against the group that has overrun swatches of Iraq and Syria. The Arab League chief suggested that military action could take place under the umbrella of a joint defense pact. President Obama is seeking an international coalition to challenge Islamic State.
