PMQs: Cameron and Chishti on Islamic State and Daesh terms

A Conservative MP said the militant group known by terms such as Islamic State, the so-called Islamic State or ISIL should be referred to as Daesh, as it is called in some other nations.

David Cameron told Rehman Chishti it was a "bunch of terrorist thugs" and said he was pleased the BBC "seems to have moved their position" over the terminology it used.
