Congress Urges Administration to Present Policy on IS

U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday called for Secretary of State John Kerry to present administration policy for "rolling back" the Islamic State's (IS) gains, after the rampaging group claimed it beheaded a second American, AFP reports.

With members of the House and Senate warning that President Barack Obama has not done enough to combat the extremist group, House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Ed Royce said he was summoning Kerry to testify once Congress returns next week from its recess.
