Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq have reportedly, for now, beaten back an assault by ISIS. Earlier this week Egyptian warplanes dropped bombs on Islamic state targets in Libya. That attack was in retaliation for the apparent beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. The video which allegedly verifies these murders suggests that the extremist group is expanding its reach beyond territory it already controls in Iraq and Syria.
