LONDON British lawmakers voted by 397 to 223 on Wednesday in favor of launching air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria soon after far more than ten hours of debate.

Britain has been bombing in Iraq for much more than a year and Prime Minister David Cameron had urged lawmakers to back extending air strikes to Syria to target militants he mentioned were plotting attacks on the West.
