Islamic State fighters tightened their siege of a town on Syria's border with Turkey on Friday despite US-led air strikes aimed at defeating the militants in both Syria and Iraq, in a coalition which has now drawn widespread European support.

Washington's closest ally in the wars of the last decade joined the alliance at last on Friday after weeks of weighing its options: Britain's parliament voted 542 to 43 to back Prime Minister David Cameron's decision to join air strikes on Iraq.

Belgium's parliament also voted 114 to 2 on Friday to take part and Denmark said it would send planes. Six Belgian F-16s took off for a staging post in Greece even before the vote.
