This undated file image posted on a militant website on Jan. 4, 2014, which is consistent with other AP reporting, shows Shakir Waheib, a senior member of the al-Qaida breakaway group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), left, next to a burning police vehicle in Iraq's Anbar Province. The Islamic State was originally al-Qaida's branch in Iraq, but it used Syria's civil war to vault into something more powerful. It defied orders from al-Qaida's central command and expanded its operations into Syria, ostensibly to fight to topple Assad. But it has turned mainly to conquering territory for itself, often battling other rebels who stand in the way. (AP Photo via Militant Website, File)

A man walks past campaign posters of the National Front far-right party in Mantes la Ville, north west of Paris, Friday, May 16, 2014.

Newly-installed far-right mayors in Mantes-la-Ville, west of the French capital, and in Beaucaire, in southwest France, are rolling out their programs and the large Muslim populations in their towns risk getting crushed. Poster left reads,"May 25 vote for France", poster right, with the pictures of the candidate of National Front far-right party for the European parliament election Aymeric Chauprade and their leader Marine Le Pen which reads"Brussels No, France Yes".
