Islamic State: Turkey to let Iraq Kurds join Kobane fight

Turkey is to allow Kurdish fighters to cross into Syria to join the battle for the town of Kobane, which has been surrounded by Islamic State militants for the past month.

The announcement came shortly after the US carried out airdrops of weapons to the town's Kurdish fighters.
