A Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 fighter jet prepares to land at the Akrotiri British airbase on September 27, 2014 after returning from a mission over Iraq to strike at Islamic State jihadistsThe German cabinet on Tuesday approved a mandate offering military assistance to back the fight against the Islamic State jihadist group, sources said. The package, which still requires parliamentary approval, covers Tornado reconnaissance jets, a naval frigate and up to 1,200 troops following a request from France in the wake of deadly jihadist attacks in Paris last month. "The German contribution serves the fight against terrorism under the auspices of the alliance against IS and is aimed at supporting in particular France, Iraq and the international alliance in its fight against IS," according to a copy of the mandate obtained by AFP.

US Marine Private First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton (C) enters a court building to face the verdict of a murder case at the regional trial court in Olongapo City on December 1, 2015A Philippine court on Tuesday convicted a US Marine for killing a Filipina transgender woman in a red light district, in a case that reignited long-simmering anti-American sentiment in the Philippines. Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton was convicted of homicide for the killing of Jennifer Laude in a motel in October, 2014, after they met in a bar following joint US military exercises near the city of Olongapo. Judge Roline Jinez Jabalde sentenced Pemberton to six to 12 years in jail -- after the charge was lowered from murder which carries a heavier penalty -- citing mitigating circumstances including Laude not revealing her gender identity.
