UK weighs more action against IS in Syria after Tunisia attack

Britain is considering whether it could and should do more to help defeat Islamic State militants in Syria after a deadly attack in Tunisia last week killed up to 30 of its nationals, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday. As part of a U.S.-led coalition against IS, Britain conducts regular air strikes in neighbouring Iraq and flies drones over Syria to gather intelligence on the militant group. But unlike some other coalition partners it does not carry out strikes against IS in Syria after Cameron lost a 2013 parliamentary vote on the issue.
