LONDON - Britain said on Tuesday that no final decision had been made over whether to join air strikes launched by the United States and several Gulf Arab allies on Islamic State strongholds in Syria.

A spokeswoman at the Ministry of Defence said discussions were still ongoing.

The office of British Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain was not currently part of the action against Islamic State militants who have seized large expanses of territory in Iraq and Syria.
