CAIRO - One of Iraq's most powerful Shi'ite Muslim militias said on Monday it fully supports Russia's intervention and air strikes against Islamic State in the Middle East and accused the United States of being indecisive in its campaign against the group.

Naim al-Uboudi, a spokesman for Asaib Ahl al-Haq, said Russia's air strikes in Syria had already produced results. "We know that the United States, during the past year and a half was not serious about putting an end to Daesh," he said, using an Arabic acronym for Islamic State.
