Merkel vows Germany will do more to fight IS extremists

Germany will do more in the fight against Islamic State militants, Chancellor Angela Merkel has said.

It was Germany’s “duty to reflect” and to “act quickly”, Mrs Merkel said in Paris, after being urged by President Hollande to commit more resources, in the wake of the Paris attacks.

France has invoked a clause requiring EU member states to provide military assistance following the attacks.

IS has said it was behind the attacks on 13 November which killed 130 people.

At least one suspected attacker is still at large.
