Iraq's ambassador to France called on the United Nations Security Council to approve extra military aid for Baghdad, including air and drone support, when it meets in New York later in the day.

"We need equipment, extra aviation and drones," Fareed Yasseen said, when asked on France Inter radio what Iraq wanted from the Council.

He said as far as he knew the Iraqi government had not yet asked the United States to launch air strikes on Islamist militants who appeared to be marching towards Baghdad, adding Iraqi special forces were now stabilizing the situation north of the capital.
