U.S. isolated as it vetoes U.N. resolution on foreign militants

NEW YORK, Aug 31 (Reuters) - The United States on Monday vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution on foreign militants fighting with groups like Islamic State because it did not address repatriation, an issue that has long-pitted Washington against its European allies.

The remaining 14 council members voted in favor of the resolution drafted by Indonesia, isolating the United States. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; Editing by Sandra Maler)
