‘ISIS is waging war on the West and we will oppose it with every breath in our body’: Foreign Secretary says British troops could be sent to Baghdad
‘The Prime Minister will hold meetings today over the ‘shocking and depraved’ execution of photographer James Foley.
The dramatic development came after the Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the Islamic State was waging war on Britain and the West and the organisation had to be dealt with ‘on that basis’.
He also said the jihadist filmed executing Mr Foley ‘appears to be British’ and revealed the Government believed the video was ‘genuine’.
Mr Hammond said the UK would oppose the Islamic State ‘with every breath in our body’ and could send British troops to Baghdad to train Iraqi forces to fight the ‘evil organisation’.’

Gaia Contains Giant, Secret Reservoir of Water, Scientists Say
One hundred and fifty years ago, in Journey to the Centre of the Earth, French science-fiction forerunner Jules Verne pictured a vast sea that lay deep under our planet’s surface.
Today, that strange and haunting image has found an unexpected echo in a scientific paper. That particular zone in the Earth, the transition zone, might have as much water as all the world’s oceans put together.
Writing in the journal Nature, scientists said they had found an elusive mineral pointing to the existence of a vast reservoir deep in Earth’s mantle, 400 to 600 kilometres beneath our feet.
That particular zone in the Earth, the transition zone, might have as much water as all the world’s oceans put together.”
It may hold as much water as all the planet’s oceans combined, they believe.
The evidence comes from a water-loving mineral called ringwoodite that came from the so-called transition zone sandwiched between the upper and lower layers of Earth’s mantle, they said.Analysis shows a whopping 1.5 per cent of the rock comprises molecules of water.The find backs once-contested theories that the transition zone, or at least significant parts of it, is water-rich, the investigators said.
“This sample really provides extremely strong confirmation that there are local wet spots deep in the Earth in this area,” said Graham Pearson of Canada’s University of Alberta, who led the research.
