The United States is "pleased" that Britain's parliament voted to approve air strikes against Islamic State insurgents in Iraq, a White House spokesman on Friday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the British vote showed "strong support" for a growing coalition of European allies that have joined the US-led military action. Britain's parliament voted 524-43 on Friday to join the military campaign.
