US Secretary of State John Kerry has spoken about the "grave" security situation in Iraq during a visit to Egypt, saying the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, known as ISIS, is a threat not only to Iraq, but the entire region.
He was speaking in Cairo, where he has travelled for talks with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi over Egypt's crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood and the threat which the conflict in Iraq poses to the Middle East.
He described the Isis ideology as one of "violence and repression".
Leaders of a Cardiff mosque, attended by 3 young men who are now fighting in Syria, say they had nothing to do with their radicalisation.
The Home Secretary has told ITV News that young women have left Britain to fight for the extremists group ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
