David Cameron has said the UK is committed to working with the US to "destroy" the so-called Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.

"That is a key part of defeating this terrorist scourge that we face.
"I want Britain to do more. I'll always have to take my parliament with me. We're talking and discussing at the moment, including with the opposition parties in Britain, what more we can do.
"Be in no doubt, we're committed to working with you [the US] to destroy the caliphate in both countries."

"Secondly, to convince the British authorities that the decision they have taken regarding Tunisia should no longer stay because it is a very painful decision for Tunisia and it is in line with the hopes of the terrorists."
