UN approves resolution urging action against Islamic State

UNITED NATIONS – The UN Security Council unanimously approved a French-sponsored resolution Friday calling on all nations to redouble and coordinate action to prevent further attacks by Islamic State terrorists and other extremist groups.

The resolution says the Islamic State group “constitutes a global and unprecedented threat to international peace and security” and expresses the council’s determination “to combat by all means this unprecedented threat.” The measure is the 14th terrorism-related resolution adopted by the UN’s most powerful body since 1999.
