'I wish the BBC would stop calling it Islamic State' – David Cameron unleashes frustration at broadcaster
David Cameron has expressed frustration at the BBC over its use of the term Islamic State, saying it gives undue credibility to the "poisonous death cult" that is "seducing" young Britons to go and fight for the terrorist organisation in Syria and Iraq.
He urged the broadcaster to refer to the terrorist group as "Isil" – the abbreviation of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
The Prime Minister was speaking after the number of Britons feared dead from the murderous attack by an Islamist gunman on a beach resort in Tunisia on Friday reached 30.
