PARIS (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande raised the possibility on Wednesday of carrying out military action against Islamic State.

“The head of state underlined the importance of a political, humanitarian and, if necessary, military response that respects international law,” Hollande’s office said in a statement after he met with top military advisors.
