Governments ‘must address corruption to defeat IS’, says report
21 Feb 2017

So-called Islamic State (IS) will never be defeated unless the corrupt conditions that help it to thrive are addressed, a new report claims.

It calls on them to press far harder for accountability in military budgets.

The report comes as Iraqi forces advance on the IS stronghold of Mosul.
