WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Thursday said Islamic State was a "brutal, vicious death cult" that was carrying out "unspeakable acts of barbarism" in the name of religion.

Speaking at an annual prayer breakfast in Washington, Obama said recent acts of violence in Paris, Pakistan and other places across the world show that faith and religion can be twisted to be used as a weapon.
