AGREEMENT BID: Rajoy to discuss ISIS threat

MARIANO Rajoy is consulting with Spain’s political leaders to seek agreement on the country’s response to Islamist terrorism.

Rajoy is trying to get support from Ciudadanos and Podemos after signing an agreement with the PSOE in February following the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
