  1. Leaders Convene to Tackle ISIS Threat

    The militants are pulling countries together. Envoys from 21 nations — including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi — are meeting today in London to find a collaborative strategy for tackling jihadist militants. The talks, Kerry says, must focus on using both military and domestic police forces to thwart terror. Meanwhile, Peshmerga fighters in Iraq have managed to disrupt a crucial ISIS supply line, and Japan is awaiting word about two hostages and a looming $200 million ransom deadline.
