Topic: France opens Iraq conference urging 'global' fight on jihadists

By John Irish and Jason Szep PARIS (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande called on Monday for united international action to tackle the threat from Islamic State militants as he opened a conference on Iraq bringing together members of a U.S.-led coalition. The United States this week unveiled an outline plan to fight the Islamist militants simultaneously in Iraq and Syria. "It is global so the response must be global ... Iraq's fight against the terrorists is also our fight. We must commit ourselves together - that is the purpose of this conference," said Hollande, who last week traveled to Baghdad to meet members of Iraq's new government.
