Emirates calls for global fight against terrorism
The United Arab Emirates is calling for a coordinated international approach to tackle the "global scourge" of terrorism, citing a particular concern about the threat posed by the Islamic State militant group that has seized large swaths of Iraq and Syria.

 

The US-allied Gulf nation's Foreign Affairs Ministry made the appeal in a statement Wednesday in which it expressed its "deepest concerns and strongest condemnation" of terrorist acts by extremist groups.
