US President Barack Obama on Wednesday voiced solidarity with France after one of its citizens was kidnapped and beheaded by jihadists in Algeria linked to the Islamic State group.

Chairing a special UN Security Council meeting on the threat of foreign fighters, Obama looked at French President Francois Hollande and said: "We stand with you and the French people as you grieve this terrible loss and as you stand up against terror in defense of liberty."
