Security Council Friday urged its members to ramp up their fight against ISIS after the Paris attacks, as Europe said it would tighten border checks and Brussels issued its highest terror alert.The attack on Bamako's luxury Radisson Blu hotel added to fears about the global extremist threat a week after attacks in Paris left 130 people dead, although there was no immediate confirmation of a link with ISIS.The 28-year-old suspected ringleader of the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Belgian of Moroccan origin, is believed to have traveled to Syria to join ISIS and be trained as an operative in Europe.One of the suspected gunmen in the Paris attacks linked to Abaaoud, 26-year-old Brussels resident Salah Abdeslam, is still the subject of a huge international manhunt.French diplomats argue it will provide important international political support to the anti-ISIS campaign, which has been ramped up since the attacks in Paris and after ISIS claimed it downed a Russian passenger jet in Egypt last month.- EU tightens borders --
