Foreign ministers meet to discuss how to tackle Islamic State in Africa

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Foreign ministers meet to discuss how to tackle Islamic State in Africa” – below is their description.

In Rome, British foreign secretary Dominic Raab has pledged £12.6 million from the UK to fight jihadi violence in West Africa. He was at a meeting of foreign ministers from more than 45 countries who are part of the global coalition against the Islamic State, which today also agreed to establish an African taskforce.

With the Islamic State now weakened in the Middle East, the frontline has moved to Africa, where thousands have been killed and millions have been displaced.
