Switzerland imposes Islamic State ban
by Caroline Bishop
Switzerland is following Germany's lead in banning extremist terror group Islamic State (Isis) and any activity that supports it.
The new ordinance, agreed by the federal government on Wednesday, comes into effect on Thursday for an initial period of six months.
A government statement said: "The Islamic State Group commits grave violations of human rights. Due to the escalation in its atrocities in the past few weeks, the Federal Council today decided to ban the group."
