The US has authorized airstrikes in northern Iraq following militant advances in the north of the country. President Barack Obama says the humanitarian and security situation necessitates immediate action. Obama on Friday (late Thursday local time) said the US had begun aid airdrops in Iraq's restive north, and would begin targeted airstrikes against militants from the "Islamic State" (IS) "if necessary."
