Villagers on Turkey-Syria border watch IS battle

The view from above a Turkish border village overlooking Syria shows just how close the country is to the front line of the fight with Islamic State militants.

Villagers from Karaca have been gathering on a nearby hill to watch and cheer on Kurdish fighters (YPG) in battle with militants.

Mark Lowen reports from Karaca.
