Canada ends bombardment of ISIS in Syria and Iraq

Incoming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose Liberal party swept to victory in this week’s general election, says he will end his country’s bombing campaign against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

The announcement followed a telephone call with US President Barack Obama in which Trudeau promised to remain a strong member of the coalition against ISIS. He also committed to take in 25,000 Syrian refugees.
