The al-Nusra Front, al-Qaida's Syrian offshoot, has threatened reprisals against nations participating in airstrikes against the Islamic State group, denouncing them as "a war against Islam".

Group spokesman Abu Firas al-Suri said in a video posted online on Saturday the states involved had "committed a horrible act that is going to put them on the list of jihadist targets throughout the world".
