The United States has indications other countries are willing to launch air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, its UN ambassador said on Sunday, predicting "we will not do the air strikes alone."

US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power was asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" if Washington had any indication other countries were willing to launch air strikes in Syria."We do," Power said. "But we're going to leave it to other nations to announce for themselves what their specific commitments to the coalition are going to be."
