SHOTLIST:AUSTRALIA POOL - NO ACCESS AUSTRALIASydney, Australia - August 11, 20141. SOUNDBITE (English) Chuck Hagel, US Secretary of Defence:"Well on ISIL (Islamic State group) you all know what (US) President (Barack) Obama has said, ISIL is a threat to the civilised world, certainly to the United States, to our interests, it is to Europe, it is to Australia. And I think reflected in a local newspaper I saw this morning, with a picture on the front page (photograph of child holding severed head published in Australian newspaper), it's pretty graphic evidence of the real threat that ISIL represents. As to how the United States is responding to that threat, in Iraq, the President has also made it clear we're going to continue to support the Iraqi security forces in every way that we can."STORYLINE: The Islamic State group in Iraq is a "threat to the civilized world" US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said on Monday.Speaking at a news conference in Sydney alongside Australian Defense Minister David Johnston, Hagel said the Islamic State group was a threat to US interests, Europe and Australia."We're going to continue to support the Iraqi security forces in every way that we can," he said.US President Barack Obama last week approved limited airstrikes against Islamic State fighters, whose rapid rise in June plunged Iraq into its worst crisis since the end of 2011, when US troops withdrew from the country at the end of an unpopular eight-year war.
