COPENHAGEN - Denmark's government will draw up proposals to expand its mission against Islamic State to Syria, including air strikes, the prime minister's office said on Friday.

As many as 400 military personal may take part in the campaign, it said.

The statement came after politicians from the main political parties voiced support for the proposal in a cross-party committee meeting that included the defence and foreign ministers. Parliament is expected to vote on the proposals soon.

The 400 military personnel will include pilots, soldiers on the ground and support staff.
