Paris attacks: UN backs ‘all necessary measures’ against IS

The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution to “redouble” action against Islamic State, following last week’s deadly attacks in Paris.

The French-drafted document urges UN members to “take all necessary measures” in the fight against IS. IS said it carried out the Paris attacks, in which 130 people died. It also claimed deadly bombings in Lebanan this month, while an IS-linked group said it downed a bombing passenger.
