Obama calls Islamic State 'the face of evil'

Associated Press

ANTALYA — President Barack Obama says the Islamic State is "the face of evil" and that all nations need to step up their efforts to combat the threat it poses.

Obama spoke at a news conference Monday in Antalya, Turkey, at the close of a summit of 20 nations. The talks were overshadowed by Friday's attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people.

He said: "We need to be doing everything we can to protect against more attacks and protect our people."

Obama will fly from Turkey to the Philippines for talks with Asian leaders.
