UN vote Friday on measure to weaken Iraq Islamists

An Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga fighter takes position on the front line in Khazer, west of Arbil, on August 14, 2014The UN Security Council is set to vote on Friday on a resolution aimed at weakening Islamists in Iraq and Syria by choking off funding and the flow of foreign fighters. The measure proposed by Britain would be the council’s toughest response yet to the jihadists who now control large swaths of Iraq and Syria, and have been accused of carrying out atrocities in their campaign. The final text, seen by AFP, demands that Islamist State (IS) fighters in Iraq and Syria, rebels from the Al-Nusrah front in Syria and other al-Qaeda-linked groups “disarm and disband with immediate effect.”
