Baghdad: The Islamic State group called on supporters to kill citizens of countries taking part in the US-led anti-jihadist coalition by any available means, in a statement posted online on Monday.

"If you can kill a disbelieving American or European -- especially the spiteful and filthy French -- or an Australian, or a Canadian... including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him," said Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, the group`s spokesman, in a message released in multiple languages.

The United States and France are carrying out air strikes against IS targets across Iraq and are seeking to build an international coalition against a group increasingly perceived as a global threat.

The jihadists, who have declared a "caliphate" straddling Iraq and Syria, control swathes of territory in both countries.
