Iraq Makes Plea for More Intel From Allies

Iraq's Prime Minister says his military needs more intelligence and more action from international allies against Islamic State extremists.
A meeting in Paris of top officials from Iraq, and international allies, including the U.S. and France comes after ISIS conquered both the Iraqi city of Ramadi and the historic Syrian city of Palmyra. The meeting does not include Russia, Iran or Syria.
More than 4,100 airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition have failed to prevent the gains by ISIS radicals.
Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said the flow of foreign fighters across the border into Iraq hasn't slowed. He says the the radical Sunni group now is majority foreign. Less than a year ago, he said, it was 60 percent Iraqi.
